Torrance County - New Mexico Department of Game and Fish officers are investigating the unlawful killing of a female deer found on a private ranch South of Duran, New Mexico. The department is requesting information from concerned citizens that could assist in solving this case.  The doe was illegally killed on or before October 23, 2012.

 

Game and Fish officers found the doe carcass with an entry wound to the gut that exited out the front shoulder.  It appeared to have been shot and killed on the private ranch and someone had begun to skin or gut the animal as there was an incision on the sternum.  Officers searched the area for evidence, unfortunately cattle tracks surrounded the carcass making it even more difficult. Officers are asking the public to call with information to assist in this case.

 

The department offers rewards for information that leads to charges against wildlife law violators. Callers can remain anonymous and may receive $500 for information about cases involving deer.
