Wyoming Game and Fish investigating pronghorn poaching case
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is trying to find out who recently poached a pair of antelopes near Riverton.
This is according to a press release from Game and Fish. According to the statement, a doe and a fawn were dumped along Bushwacker Road near Missouri Valley Road.
Investigators believe the animals were “most likely killed in a different location between September 26 and October 1, dressed and then thrown onto Bushwacker Road,” according to North Riverton Game Ward Jon Desonier.
He goes on to say that because the animals were thrown along the road, there’s a good chance someone saw something.
According to the press release:
Anyone with information about this wildlife violation can report tips or suspicious activity by calling the Stop Poaching hotline 1-877-WGFD-TIP (1-877-943-3847), sending the word- WGFD key and your message to TIP411 (847-411), report in line, or by contacting North Riverton Game Warden Desonier at 307-856-4982 with any information you feel is relevant or if you have seen suspicious activity in the area. Journalists can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $ 5,000 if the information leads to a conviction. ”
While antelopes are often referred to as “antelopes” in Wyoming, technically antelopes are not considered an antelope.
