The Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife Division from the Baker City office is asking for the public's assistance in locating the person(s) responsible for the unlawful killing and waste of a 4-point mule deer buck found within the city limits of Baker City ten days ago.
On September 07, 2012 at approximately 5:00 p.m. OSP Fish & Wildlife Senior Trooper Jason McNeil received a call about a deceased mule deer buck on private property in Baker City. McNeil responded to the scene with the reporting person and confirmed a large 4-point mule deer buck had been killed and left to spoil near the Powder River within the Baker City limits. Examination of the deer confirmed the cause of death was the result of a criminal act but specific details are being withheld at this time. The buck appeared to have been dead about a week.
A reward of up to $500 is being offered by the Oregon Hunters Association Turn-In-Poachers (TIP) reward program for information leading to the arrest and conviction in this case. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact Senior Trooper Jason McNeil at (541) 523-5867 ext. 4171 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
