Yearling doe shot, left to rot; police ask public for help identifying vehicle seen nearby
NORTH BEND, Ore. - State police appealed to the public for help identifying a vehicle seen near where a yearling doe was shot and left to rot in Coos County last month.
The Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Division released a photograph of the vehicle seen in the area around the time the doe was shot on October 22.
State police were called to the scene off Willanch Lane the next day.
"No effort had been made to salvage any of the meat from the animal," police said of the yearling doe.
The public is urged to call Oregon State Police Trooper Brian Koell through the Turn in Poachers (TIP) hotline at 1-800-452-7888 or 541-888-2677 ext 244.
A reward of up to $500 is available in the case.
