Police are asking for the public’s help tracking down a poacher who shot a deer and left it to waste. 

The Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Division in Newport responded to Gravel Creek Road near Horner Ranch on Nov.  3. The location is about 25 miles east of Siletz.

A black tail buck was found dead. The deer appeared to have been shot the previous night and was left with no meat taken.
