G&F seek info in pronghorn poaching by Riverton

WYOMING – Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials are seeking information regarding a doe and fawn pronghorn dumped and left to waste along Bushwacker Road, near Missouri Valley Road north of Riverton.

Game warden Jon Desonier discovered the two pronghorn on Oct. 2 following a report from the public.

Desonier said they were “most likely killed in a different location between Sept. 26 and Oct. 1, field dressed and then dumped off Bushwacker Road.” He said because they were found dumped alongside the road, anyone with the smallest tip is encouraged to contact Wyoming Game and Fish.

Those with information can call the Stop Poaching Hotline at 1-877-943-3847, reporting online or by contacting Desonier directly at 307-856-4982. Reporters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward up to $5,000 if the information leads to a conviction.
