Colorado Parks and Wildlife would like the public’s help solving a poaching crime. On Nov. 14, a mule deer buck was shot and left in the Dome Rock State Wildlife Area.
Information is needed on any vehicles that may have been seen in the main parking lot at Dome Rock or if someone may have accessed Dome Rock through Cripple Creek Mountain Estates.
Wildlife officers hope someone may have heard or seen something that may shed light on the incident. There is a $500 reward if a tip results in a citation.
Anyone with information can call Tonya Sharp at 719-227-5281 or contact Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648. Verizon cell phone users can dial #OGT. Tips can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife urges people to call their local wildlife office whenever they have information about illegal hunting or fishing activities. Callers may remain anonymous if they wish.
