Suspects sought in Shady Cove deer attacks

Oregon State Police troopers are seeking tips after coming across a pair of live deer struck with arrows in the Shady Cove area.

On Friday evening, Oregon State Police and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife found two deer with arrows protruding from their bodies, according to an OSP press release issued Saturday evening.

Neither of the two deer suffered life-threatening injuries in the arrow attacks, according to police, and have been able to walk around and feed with the protruding arrows; however, police believe a third deer may have been struck.

A reward may be available through the Oregon Hunters Association Turn-in-Poachers program, and tipsters can be anonymous. Call the tip hotline at 1-800-452-788 or OSP dispatch at 541-776-6111.
