Reward offered in killing of deer last August near Biosphere 2

ORACLE - An reward of up to $1,250 is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the possible illegal killing of a deer last year.

It happened on the opening day of the 2012 archery season for the species on August 24, 2012, near the old airstrip north of Biosphere 2.

Two people are suspected of being part of the killing.

"We know archery deer hunters frequent the area, and there is a good chance they may have witnessed this crime. Any information, no matter how small, may be useful," said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega. "We need the public's help. Poachers are not hunters, and those who commit these acts are stealing resources from the citizens of Arizona."

If you have information about the case you're urged to call the Game and Fish Operation Game Thief hotline toll-free at (800) 352-0700 and reference OGT #12-002327.
