Someone illegally shot a mule deer in Craig Tuesday. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials want to know who did it. Officials responded to the injured mule deer buck in the 700 block of Barclay Street in Craig on Tuesday. The injured deer had an arrow sticking from his left rear hip. Wildlife Officer Mike Swaro says the deer seems to be doing OK.
Swaro says the wound was fresh and the black carbon arrow looked new, like it could have been a Christmas gift. They would like to know who did it, and if it might have been a mistake. They will take that into account if the person comes forward.
If you have any information on who left the arrow in the buck in Craig, call Swaro directly at 970-942-8275. Or you can remain anonymous by contacting Operation Game Thief. There could be a monetary reward.
