Indiana conservation officers are asking the public’s help to find a man who shot a fawn and left it in a Marshall County Field.
A witness said a man got out of a small, yellow hatchback car similar to a Ford Focus or Dodge Caliber, and fired what appeared to be a shotgun several times into a field, according to a news release from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
He then got back into the vehicle and left without making any attempt to recover what he had just shot, the witness said.
Conservation officers arrived at the scene and found a small fawn deer with several bullet wounds consistent with a shotgun.
A passing motorist told officers the suspect was driving in the 15000 block of Fir Road, north of 15B Road near Bourbon, around 3:50 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 10, when he pulled over at the side of the road.
The witness described the suspect as a white male, possibly bald, wearing a sleeveless shirt and blue jeans accompanied by a white female.
Anyone with information that could help identify the suspect is asked to call the Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Turn In a Poacher (TIP) line at 800-TIP-IDNR (800-847-4367).
