Georgia DNR looking for leads on Poached Duct Taped Deer to a Sign

Else where in the U.S., Georgia authorities are looking for your help to nab whoever taped this deer to a road sign.

Officers said the deer was found on Highway 90 after several people called 911 to report it. According to officers, the deer had been shot, so they are investigating if the deer was illegally hunted.

In a photo posted on Facebook, you can see someone duct taped sunglasses on the deer, and it appears they also put a shirt on it.

Photos of the deer first appeared on Facebook on Tuesday. And now WALB reports authorities are saying the deer was shot and they are investigating the incident further. A reward is also being offered for leads in this strange case.

Not only does it appear the deer was shot, but the person or persons responsible also apparently put a shirt on the animal and taped sunglasses to its head.

If you have any information on this strange case, contact the Georgia DNR on their poaching tip line at 1-800-241-4113.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time that this has happened of someone duct-taping a dead deer. Back in January, authorities in Ohio were looking for leads on the carcasses of several deer that were found with holes bored in their bodies and wrapped in tape.

Information unknown of any arrests relating to that case.
