December 1, 2015
KINGMAN, Ariz. - The Arizona Game and Fish Department is seeking information about the recent poaching of a mule deer doe and fawn near Valentine, about 30 miles northeast of Kingman, in Game Management Unit 18A.
Both deer were shot twice and left to waste Dec. 2.
"Evidence was collected at the scene, but help from the public will play a critical role in finding those responsible," said Justin Winter, wildlife manager. "This is not the act of a hunter. Poaching is a crime. It is important for anyone with information to come forward and help Game and Fish bring those responsible to justice."
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the department's Operation Game Thief hotline at (800) 352-0700, or visit http://www.azgfd.gov/thief, and refer to case #15-003883. Callers may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 in this case. Callers can remain confidential upon request.
