PINETOP, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Game and Fish Department officials say they’re investigating another poaching case.
They say two mule deer does were illegally killed late last month on a forest road south of Nelson Reservoir near Pinetop.
Authorities say one doe was taken from the field and the other was mostly left to waste.
Game and Fish officials say there was a lawful, open cow elk hunt going on at the time of the Dec. 23 poaching.
