Officers from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR) recently investigated several deer that were killed illegally west of Price. The deer were shot west of Pinnacle Peak in the Haley Canyon and Long Bench area. After the deer were killed, they were left to waste.
A reward of $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the poaching of these deer. Anyone with information should contact Officer Chris Rhea at 435-820-6016 or the Help Stop Poaching hotline at 1-800-662-DEER. Those calling with information may remain anonymous or confidential.
During the winter months, deer, especially bucks are vulnerable. They are easily located by anyone recreating in the hills outside of town. Numerous deer are poached each year. Each illegally killed buck can greatly affect the future deer population. If you witness any wildlife violation, please call the Help Stop Poaching hotline at 1-800-662-DEER.
