Mounties searching for poacher who killed West Kelowna deer in early hours

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.
