Wyoming Game and Fish Department is investigating two reports of wasted big game animals in southwest Wyoming.
Evanston Game Warden Nick Roberts says he received reports of wasted big game animals on Oct. 19.
One involved a doe mule deer that had been field dressed and appeared to have been hung since the deer season ended. The deer was abandoned at the intersection of U.S. Highway 150 and Uinta County Road 173, near Sulphur Creek Reservoir. No meat was removed from the doe.
The second wasted animal is a calf elk that was skinned and partially field dressed. The back straps were removed, while the rest of the carcass was abandoned north of the Bear River, near the Utah state line, west of the Session Mountains.
