Wyoming Game and Fish Warden Andy Roosa believes the deer was poached on either Thursday or Friday of last week.

ROCK SPRINGS — Wyoming Game and Fish Department Rock Springs Game Warden Andy Roosa is seeking information on a mule deer buck that was illegally killed near Superior, Wyoming this weekend.

Roosa said he is hoping to receive a tip from the public, 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 14th or 15th.”
