Oregon Central Point (OSP) Fish and Wildlife Troopers and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) were recently called to investigate a disturbing case. A live deer was shot with an arrow in Shady Cove, Oregon, after which the animal was left wandering in the area. Unfortunately, the teams were not able to locate the deer once they arrived at the site of the incident, but, according to Oregon State Police, later that evening a trooper found not just one but two deer “that had arrows protruding from them.” The department received additional information that there may be a third animal that had been shot in the same manner. It’s not only incredibly cruel to do this sort of thing, but it is also illegal.

Both deer were successfully tranquilized and had the arrows removed from their bodies. According to Steve Niemela, Rogue District Wildlife Biologist, the deer have a very good chance of survival.

“ODFW wildlife biologists and OSP Fish & Wildlife Troopers worked together to track and tranquilize the deer, remove the arrows and treat the wounds,” the department wrote in a Facebook post. “The deer, an adult doe and a yearling doe, were successfully released in good health with no visible infection.”

The case is now being investigated in hopes of identifying the person responsible for injuring the animals. A reward is being offered through the Turn-in-Poachers (TIP) program for any information that will lead to an arrest in this or any other similar wildlife cases. The total reward is now 2,600 dollars. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the TIP hotline at 1-800-452-7888 or call Oregon State Police Dispatch at 541-776-6111.

The person responsible for this cruelty has to be found and prosecuted. Click here to voice your support for an in-depth investigation of the case and sign the petition for the Oregon State Police to do everything they can to find the perpetrator.
