OSP looking for information on buck deer killed in Baker City
The Oregon Hunters Association is offering a reward of up to $500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the illegal killing and waste of a 4-point mule deer buck killed recently inside the Baker City limits.
Oregon State Police announced in a press release Monday that the deer carcass was found on Sept. 7.
About 5 p.m. that day, OSP Sr. Trooper Jason McNeil of the Baker City office received a call about a dead buck deer on private property in the city. McNeil determined the deer had been killed and left to rot near the Powder River.
Examination confirmed the deer died as "result of a criminal act, but specific details are being withheld at this time," according to the press release.
The deer had been dead for about a week before it was found.
