Thrill Killings Take Lives of Many Deer [Message #1]

DNR Conservation Warden Joe Paul is investigating the illegal poaching of deer found in the southern part of Price County, primarily in the areas of Prentice and Ogema. There is also an ongoing investigation of deer being killed in a similar manner in the Kennan and Catawba areas.

Over 30 deer and counting have been found, both adult bucks and does, some with their heads and loins removed. These decomposing deer were found this fall after area residents report to the DNR that deer were found dead or nearly dead on private land. These thrill killings primarly took place in mid-October with the use of fire arms and shining. It is illegal to shine deer with a fire arm or bow present.

Often the DNR will harvest poached animals and give the meat to local food pantries for families in need. Unfortunately, none of these deer could be used for that purpose. Paul stated this was a tragic waste of natural resources.

Mostly juveniles are thought to be responsible for these killings; however, some adults are also presumed to be involved. Paul has interviewed many individuals regarding this case, which will soon be pending in the court system, though no charges have been filed yet.

If you have any information on this or other DNR violations, you may call the tip line at 1-800-TIP-WDNR.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
