Riverton Game Warden, Allen Deru, is seeking information about an adult buck mule deer illegally shot in Riverton, Monday morning, Sept. 23. This crime took place at approximately 10:50 a.m.near Riverview Rd.
Deru does have some leads in the case, and the investigation is ongoing. He urges anyone with information about these crimes – even if it is second hand – to report it to the Stop Poaching Hotline at (877) WGFD-TIP, the Game and Fish website at wgfd.wyo.gov or call him directly anytime at 307-856-4982.
“We have some good information to work with so far and we are hopeful we can build a case and charge these violators,” Deru said. “You never know which piece of information can lead to the successful completion of a case like this and any information is helpful.”
He adds callers may be eligible for a cash reward up to $5,000 if the information leads to a conviction and callers can remain anonymous. “So even close acquaintances to the violator who are disturbed about the crime can call without having their identity revealed,” he said.
