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.
