COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife is seeking information on a possible poaching incident near Hanover, Colorado, southeast of Fountain.
Wildlife officers recently investigated a report of two dead deer that had been dumped along Hanover road in eastern El Paso County. During a necropsy the officers found signs that lead them to believe the deer had been poached. It is estimated these deer were killed on, or around January 13.
“Wildlife belong to everyone in Colorado, and when a person kills something illegally, they steal from all of us,” said District Wildlife Manager Adam Gerstenberger.
Anyone with information on this case, or any other possible poaching incident, is urged to contact either DWM Gerstenberger at (719) 227-5282 , or you can provide information through the Operation Game Thief hotline: 1 (877) 265-6648.
