On Sunday, August 5, 2018, Meadow Lake Conservation Officers received information that a White-tailed deer was shot and left to waste on posted land near Meadow Lake. The incident occurred 4 miles north of the Pulp Mill on Highway 903, directly across from the end of Meadow River Road. At approximately 8:30pm, a newer red SUV drove past a no hunting or trespassing sign and the occupants shot a White-Tailed deer on the posted private property. The suspect vehicle then proceeded to wait on Highway 903 for some time before entering the field. It is believed that there were three individuals involved and one was wearing blue coveralls. The vehicle drove up to the deer, but did not retrieve it, then left the area heading west on the Meadow River Road. Conservation Officers collected evidence at the scene. Do you know who committed this wildlife crime?
