Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating the shooting of a fawn deer which occurred last Saturday at approximately 3:50pm in the 1500 block of Fir Road, just north of 15B Road in Marshall County.
Officers are searching for a small, yellow, hatchback compact car similar to a Ford Focus or Dodge Caliber. The driver of the vehicle is described as a white male, possibly bald who was wearing a sleeveless shirt and blue jeans. He was accompanied by a white female.
A passing motorist observed the male subject exit the vehicle and shoot into an adjacent field several times with what appeared to be a shotgun. The female was also seen exiting the vehicle. After shooting into the field the subject left the area and did not make any attempt to recover what he had just shot.
Officers responded to the scene and located a small fawn deer with several bullet holes in it consistent with a shotgun wound.
Anyone with information which may assist officers in this investigation are encouraged to call the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (Turn In A Poacher) TIP line at 1.800.TIP.IDNR. You may remain anonymous by calling this number.
