The authorities are searching for the poacher who shot and killed a doe who was pregnant with nearly full-term twin fawns. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Police reached out to the public about the cruel case on Wednesday afternoon.
In a social media post, the wildlife agency explained what happened:
WDFW Police are investigating the alleged poaching of an adult pregnant doe in the Battle Ground area of Clark County. “The doe was left to waste in the area of the BG 2000 line, which is located off of N.E. Berry Road,” Officer Van Vladricken said.
The doe was found with multiple bullet wounds and had twin fawns (both male) days away from being born.” The deer is believed to have been shot between the evenings of Thursday the 23rd and Friday the 24th. The deer was left on sight to waste and was found days later.
The public is asked to come forward with information and tips to help solve this crime.
Anyone who might have information regarding the incident is encouraged to called the WDFW at 360-902-2928, visit the department’s website at wdfw.wa.gov by clicking on violations, or text WDFWTIP to 847411.
The wildlife agency stated:
Those who provide information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward or bonus points for special permit hunting opportunities.
