CPW officers investigating another poaching case

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are investigating a case of suspected poaching involving a large buck deer found near mile marker 85 on Colorado Highway 96 east of Pueblo, the agency announce in a news release.

According to the release, the head and antlers were removed.

“It looks like the deer might have been shot somewhere else and dumped along Highway 96,” Quentin Springer of Colorado Parks and Wildlife said in the release.

Wildlife officers hope someone may have heard or seen something that may shed light on the incident. There is a $500 reward if a tip results in a citation, the release stated.

Anyone with information can call Springer at 719-565-9562 or contact Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648. Verizon cell phone users can dial #OGT, and tips can be e-mailed to game.thief@state.co.us.
