Information wanted about dumped deer carcass

According to Alaska State Troopers, a Klawock resident reported Tuesday that a deer had been dumped near the Klawock boat launch ramp without all the meat salvaged.

Troopers say that a Sitka blacktail deer had been left there with the head missing and the backstraps taken, but no other meat salvaged. The person who failed to salvage all edible meat from the deer could face charges of wanton waste of big game.

Any person with information about this or other wildlife crimes can remain anonymous and potentially collect a reward by calling Alaska Fish and Wildlife Safeguard at 800-478-3377.
