Lubbock game wardens are looking for anyone that has information regarding two dead mule deer that were dumped in Southeastern Lubbock county, near Ransom Canyon. On Sunday November 17th, local wardens received a call stating that two mule deer had been dumped on a road and were possibly poached (hunted/killed illegally). The location was near the intersection of CR 3600 and East CR 7000. Once on scene, the wardens observed two dead mule deer, with the hindquarters left unharvested indicating a possible waste of game violation. Evidence was taken on scene, but if any individual has information relating to this case, please contact a Lubbock County game warden or report anonymously at the Operation Game Thief hotline 800-792-GAME.
