Deer Illegally Dumped And Pet Dog Shot And Killed

Game wardens are asking for your help to find those who allegedly shot and killed a family's dog and dumped a dead deer on their property.

A Tyler family says they found the deer with the antler's sawed off on their neighbors property off Old Noonday Road Sunday. The family's pet Labrador, "Lucky" was also found shot.

Game warden's hope someone will come forward.

"These are just killers, it's just pure meanness," said Chris Green, Game Warden with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.  "It's a shame we have people like this in our society but hopefully a tip from somebody will help turn these people in because they may escalate to people next, it's just pure meanness.

The suspects could face charges of cruelty to animals and wasted game. If you have any information on this, call the Smith County Sheriff's Department or 1-800-792-GAME.
