Pair of antelopes shot, left to rot

ESTANCIA – The Department of Game and Fish would like to make the holidays a lot less merry for whoever shot two pronghorn antelope and left them to rot in a field near Estancia.
Conservation officer John Martsh said the antelope were killed sometime between 10 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Dec. 15, off N.M. 542 south of Estancia. There was no hunting season in progress at the time.
“It appears that someone drove up, shot the antelope and then left the scene in a hurry to prevent being caught,” Martsh said.
A $350 reward is being offered for information that leads to charges being filed in connection with the case. Call 800-432-4263 to report any information.
