Operation Game Thief tips needed

Texas Wildlife Crime Stoppers are asking for the public’s help in identifying an individual responsible for illegally killing a deer in Freestone County. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the individual. Officials say only the head of the deer was taken, while the carcass was left to waste sometime between the evening of Nov. 22 and the early morning hours of Nov. 23. The poacher allegedly shot the whitetail deer without landowner consent from a high-fence property near the intersection of FM 1366 and FM 27, approximately five miles outside of Wortham. If anyone saw or heard anything about this crime, they are urged to call 1-800-792-GAME (4263). Operation Game Thief is Texas’ wildlife crime-stoppers program, a function of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Law Enforcement Division. OGT offers rewards
