With the help of the Oregon Hunter's Association and The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust, two rewards are offered for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for illegally killing a blacktail deer near Damascus in late July. Rewards of up to $2500 by the HSUS and $250 by the Oregon Hunter's Association are offered to help solve this case.
On July 20, 2011 at approximately 10:15 p.m. several shots were reported being heard in the area of SE 242nd Avenue and SE Bohna Park Road. A dead deer was found in a field and the preliminary investigation by Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife Division Trooper Mark Schoenborn indicates the deer was killed using a small caliber rifle.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact Trooper Schoenborn at (503) 490-4856 or Trooper Chris Boeholt at (971) 313-1172.
