Officials looking for whoever shot a deer near Squamish and left it to rot in the woods

Deer carcass left in woods

BC Conservation Officers are hoping someone can lead them to whoever killed a deer and left its carcass to rot.

A post on the COS Facebook page said they are seeking information about a deer that was shot and left near Swift Creek FSR north of Squamish.

Conservation officers believe the doe was shot on Nov. 19 and there is no antlerless deer season in the area.

Earlier this month, West Kootenay Conservation Officers said three dead female mule deer were found in the Bulldog Mountain area near the Paulson Summit in Castlegar.

“The three mule deer were found dead in a clear-cut area approximately 21 km up the Bulldog Forest Service Road,” said a post on the COS Facebook page.

“There was nothing removed from the deer.”

There is no open season allowing for the lawful harvest of mule deer does in the West Kootenay area of B.C.

Anyone with information on either incident is asked to call the Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) hotline at 1-877-952-RAPP (7277).
