Game and Fish investigating poaching incident near Superior

SWEETWATER COUNTY, Wyo. — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking information on a mule deer buck that was illegally killed near Superior, Wyoming sometime last week.

Game and Fish Rock Springs Game Warden Andy Roosa is hoping to receive a tip from the public—maybe someone who might have been in the area and saw something—after the animal was discovered over the weekend, approximately two miles east of Superior off of County Road 18.

“The head and antlers were removed and all edible portions of the deer were left to waste,” Roosa said. “I believe the deer might have been shot around November 14 or 15.”

Anyone with information on this or any other wildlife violation may call the Stop Poaching Hotline at 1-877-WGFD-TIP (1-877-943-3847) or 1-307-777-4330 for out-of-state calls. Tips may be reported online directly to game warden Andy Roosa at 307-350-4204, or by calling the Green River Game and Fish Office at-1-307-875-3223. Poaching information may also be texted; text keyword WGFD a message toTIP411 (847-411).

Individuals submitting information leading to a conviction can be eligible for a reward through the Wyoming Wildlife Protector’s Association.
