Deer not poached

Nov 13, 2013 - The Associated Press

ROCK SPRINGS -- There's new information about the death of a well-known mule deer that frequented the campus of Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says the buck recently was found dead with its antlers removed. That prompted speculation the buck was poached. But the deer instead was hit by a vehicle on Interstate 80. It is illegal for anybody to remove the antlers from a deer they didn't kill legally.
