OSP investigating multiple deer that were shot with arrows

On April 27, Central Point Fish and Wildlife troopers were called to the Shady Cove area to investigate a live deer that had been shot with an arrow which was still stuck in the deer.
The troopers and ODFW responded in an effort to investigate and possibly tranquilize the deer to be able to remove the arrow.
Information was provided that the deer was able to feed and walk around, but troopers were unable to locate the deer.
A trooper responded later that evening and at that time found not one but two deer that had arrows protruding from them. The injuries to the deer did not appear to be life-threatening. Additional information was received that there might also be a third deer with an arrow stuck in it.
A reward is being offered by the Oregon Hunters Association through the Turn-in-Poachers (TIP) program for any information leading to an arrest in this or any other wildlife case. Callers can remain anonymous. The TIP program number is 1-800-452-7888.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact either the TIP hotline at 1-800-452-7888 or Oregon State Police Dispatch at 541-776-6111.
Poaching wildlife and damaging habitats affects present and future generations of wildlife, impacts communities and the economy, and creates enforcement challenges.

The Turn-In-Poachers (TIP) reward is paid for information leading to the arrest/conviction of person(s) for the illegal possession, killing, taking and/or waste of deer, elk, antelope, bear, cougar, wolf, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, moose, furbearers and/or game birds.

TIP rewards can also be given for the illegal taking, netting, snagging and/or dynamiting of salmon, steelhead, sturgeon and/or large numbers of any fish listed in Oregon statute as a game fish.
