Mounties and conservation officers are asking for the public’s help after someone poached a deer before ditching a gun in West Kelowna.
It happened in the early hours of Oct. 7 near Trepanier Road.
An officer was patrolling near the overpass when he found a large pool of blood on the road.
He then found drag marks that led to an SKS rifle with a camo sling, which had apparently been abandoned.
Police believe the animal – probably a male mule deer – was killed between 1:45 and 2:45 am.
Anyone who can help identify the owner of the rifle is asked to call West Kelowna RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
