CARSON CITY — Authorities still are searching for information that will lead them to the person or persons responsible for the illegal killing of several deer southwest of Carson City. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust (HSWLT) are offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to an identification, arrest and conviction in the case.

According to the Nevada Division of Wildlife, on Jan. 12 a buck was found dead in Voltaire Canyon. Wardens found the tracks of at least seven additional injured deer, but were not able to locate those deer despite searching a four-square-mile range.  It is believed that the deer were all shot in the same location.

The HSUS and HSWLT have an outstanding $2,500 reward for information on a deer poaching case that happened in the same region last year.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Operation Game Thief at 800-992-3030. Callers can remain anonymous.
