BEND, Ore. — The Oregon State Police is asking for the public’s help to find the person or people who poached two mule deer earlier this year in Central Oregon.
Investigators said Friday they believe the first animal was killed around Oct. 29 south of Pine Mountain in Deschutes County.
The second deer was found dead in the Three Rivers community near Lake Billy Chinook in Jefferson County.
Troopers believe the two incidents are not related.
A reward of up to $500 is being offered by the Oregon Hunters Association.
