Deer poached north of Ketchum

Organization offering reward for information on June incident


By EXPRESS STAFF

    A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for the shooting and waste of a doe deer off Lake Creek Road north of Ketchum.
    The reward is being offered by the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust.


Officers believe the incident happened on June 11 or 12.



    Idaho Department of Fish and Game officers began an investigation of the case the second week of June, when a doe mule deer and the remains of two fawns were found three quarters of a mile north of Lake Creek Road in a popular camping area. Evidence was collected at the scene.
    Officers believe the incident happened on June 11 or 12, and are hoping to get the help of the public to solve the case. People with information leading to a conviction on these or other crimes are also eligible for a reward through Citizens Against Poaching. Callers can remain anonymous for both rewards. People can either contact Citizens Against Poaching at (800) 632-5999 or call the Fish and Game Regional Office at (208) 324-4359.
