The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is trying to find out who is responsible for disposing of white-tailed deer in southeast Minnesota.
According to a release, eight white-tailed deer were dumped near the Zumbro River in Wabasha County. A conservation officer received word that the carcasses were dumped sometime Sunday night into Monday morning along County Road 81 near the City of Kellogg.
Seven of the eight are bucks and all seven had their antlers or antlers and skull plates removed.
"At the very least, this is a waste of Minnesota’s precious natural resources," said Greg Salo, assistant director of the DNR Enforcement Division. "We urge anyone with information related to this ongoing investigation to call the Turn in Poachers hotline."
The number to call is 1-800-652-9093.
