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.”
