County Sheriff’s Report
Utah Division of Wildlife Resources conservation officers are looking for someone who illegally shot a buck recently near Coalville.
"It’s a senseless killing," DWR officer Robert Witt said. "That’s what it is when somebody shoots something like this and leaves it."
A citizen found the carcass and contacted the state’s "Help Stop Poaching" hotline (800) 662-3337. The DWR has offered a reward for information that leads to the alleged poacher’s conviction.
