SHADY COVE, Ore. -- Central Point Fish and Wildlife Troopers were called to the Shady Cove area Friday to investigate a live deer that had been shot with an arrow which was still stuck in the animal.


A trooper responded later that evening and found not one, but two deer that had arrows protruding from them. The injuries to the animals did not appear to be life-threatening. Both deer were able to feed and walk around.

Officials received another tip that there might actually be a third deer with an arrow stuck in it.

A reward is being offered by the Oregon Hunters Association through the Turn-in-Poachers (TIP) program for any information leading to an arrest in this or any other wildlife case.
