The Wyoming Game & Fish Department is seeking information regarding a doe that was illegally poached. Game & Fish officials received a call early on Oct. 2nd about a dead doe mule deer. After arriving in the area, officers found the deer had been shot and left to waste.

This poaching took place just across the Green River from the Pioneer Trails Picnic Ground. This area lies within GMU 131, while hunting season was active during the time this doe was shot it seems to be a clear case of wanton waste of wildlife. It looks like the doe must have been shot sometime before Oct. 2nd along the banks of the river. As a result of the investigation, officers believe that zero attempts were made to harvest or retrieve the doe.
