Mule deer graze in September on the east side of Casper Mountain.

ROCK SPRINGS (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says someone has poached a mule deer buck in Sweetwater County.

Rock Springs game warden Andy Roosa says the deer was illegally killed about 2 miles east of Superior and was found off a county road.

Roosa says the head and antlers were removed and all edible portions of the deer were left to waste.

It’s believed that the deer might have been shot late last week, around Thursday or Friday.

The incident remains under investigation.
