Colorado Parks and Wildlife investigating deer poaching in Morrison

MORRISON, Colo. — Officials are investigating the killing of a deer which had to be killed after it was shot with two arrows in Willow Springs in Morrison.

The wounds were fatal, said Jason Clay, a public information officer with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, so the deer had to be put down.

"It is not hunting season, this was poaching," he said in an email. "Poachers are criminals and should be dealt with as such."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Operation Game Thief at 1-877-265-6648 or game.thief@state.co.us.

People who call can do so anonymously, and do not have to testify in court.

Officials are offering a $500 reward for information that leads to charges for whoever shot the doe.

A GoFundMe has been established to help increase the reward being offered by CPW.
