FWC, Lafayette County sheriff seek information on deer killed in pen

Live Oak —

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office are requesting the public’s help in determining who killed a doe through the high fence of a deer pen off County Road 251.

On Jan. 14, FWC officers responded to a report about the deer that had been shot in a pen. The owner heard the shot, checked the pen and found the dead doe.

“The investigation into who committed this crime is continuing, and a reward is being offered by the landowner if the information leads to an arrest and conviction,” said Lafayette County Sheriff Brian Lamb. “People with information can call 386-294-1301.”

“Anyone with information can also call the Wildlife Alert number at 888-404-3922 to report the crime,” said Capt. Martin Redmond, FWC area supervisor. “Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for rewards from both the landowner and Wildlife Alert.”

People with information can also report the crime online through MyFWC.com.
