Police Put Down Illegally Shot Deer

A deer was illegally shot with an arrow and was mortally wounded over the weekend in Meeker. After putting the deer down, police tracked blood four blocks to an apartment complex. Upon arriving at the apartment complex, police witnessed an individual hiding a bow underneath clothes they were carrying. Police interviewed the person who said that an acquaintance, who had attended a Friday party at the complex, used a bow and arrow to shoot the deer. A summons is expected to be issued by the Department of Wildlife for the suspect’s arrest. Alcohol consumption is believed to have contributed to the incident.
