PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oregon State Police say authorities have removed arrows from two deer, one of which was shot through its face.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Thursday that the deer in the Shady Cove area were shot illegally. Authorities began receiving calls about the deer last week.

The adult doe and a yearling doe, shot through the head and body, have been released in good health and without visible infection.

A reward for information leading to the arrest or citation of those responsible for the shooting has been bumped to $2,600.

Steve Niemela, Rogue District Wildlife Biologist, said the deer have a very good chance of survival.

  1. Very happy about this…however I am running out of adjectives to describe the perpetrators of these horrible crimes.
