Reward offered for info on deer dumper

KINGMAN - Arizona Game and Fish is investigating a case of a mule deer buck that was killed and then dumped east of Kingman.

The carcass was discovered on Airway Avenue one mile east of where the road turns to dirt. The antlers and back straps, the two muscle groups on either side of the spine, were removed and the rest of the animal was left to waste.

Operation Game Thief is offering up to a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) responsible for this crime.

A Game and Fish officer investigating the crime believes the carcass was dumped either the evening of Oct. 27 or the morning of Oct. 28. There are houses near the dump site and many people in the area are involved in outdoor activities.

"I'm hopeful somebody saw something suspicious in the area," said Velma Holt-Buhr, west sector supervisor for the Game and Fish Region 3 office in Kingman. "While this deer may have been legally taken, it is a violation to waste game meat. It's possible this was the act of a novice hunter who didn't know how to butcher the animal, or someone just being lazy."

Holt-Buhr said any information would be helpful, including a name, license plate, exact location, and date and time of the suspected dumping.

"We've had a number of cases around Kingman this year and it would be nice to hold those responsible accountable," Holt-Buhr said. "We need the eyes and ears of the public to help with cases such as this.

"Responsible sportsmen and women don't leave an animal to waste."

Holt-Buhr added that if an individual does not want to utilize an animal themselves, they can donate the meat to a soup kitchen rather than wasting the animal and dumping it.

Anyone with information regarding this case or any wildlife violation should call the OGT hotline at (800) 352-0700. Web submissions can be reported via the Internet by going to Identities will remain confidential. Anyone calling should reference case number 12-002507.
