    The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is seeking information from the public after two doe deer were illegally killed in Carbon County.

    DWR conservation officers received reports of two dead, discarded doe deer in Carbon County. One of the deer was located in Spring Canyon near Helper and the other was found near Airport Road near Price. Officers discovered that both deer had gunshot wounds to the head and were wrapped in tarps, with only limited amounts of meat removed from the carcasses.

    Upon further investigation, officers determined that one deer was likely shot sometime during the winter months, while the other was likely shot and killed in March.

    DWR officers always seek help with protecting the deer herds in this area, according to DWR officials. Anyone with information related to the illegal killing and wasting of these deer or any other protected wildlife is asked to contact the UTIP Hotline at 1-800-662-3337.

    People can also submit a report online or can submit tips directly to the officers involved: DWR Conservation Officer Justin Brimhall at 435-820-6445 and Sgt. JD Abbott at 435-650-0654. Requests for confidentiality will be honored.

    A monetary reward might be available to anyone who provides information that leads to the successful prosecution of those responsible for these crimes.
