Antelope illegally shot, left to rot
ALBUQUERQUE – The Department of Game and Fish needs help finding the person or persons who illegally shot five antelope on Feb. 10 on the King Ranch close to the Zia Pueblo.
The antelope, two headless bucks and three does were found shot with a centerfire rifle and left in a pile to rot.
“It appears that someone cut the fence, drove onto the ranch, shot the antelope, and cut off the heads,” said Shawn Carrell, District Officer for the Albuquerque area.
There was no legal hunt occurring during this time, so the intent by the individual or individuals responsible for this crime is still under investigation.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Operation Game Thief at 800-432-4263.
