CASPER, Wyo. — A buck mule deer has been found shot and left to waster near Brusett, Montana.

“A mule deer buck was shot and left to waste near Brusett in Garfield County in the last day or two,” Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks said on Nov. 27. “The deer’s head was removed and the animal was caped out, according to FWP Region 7 Warden Dave Walter.”

According to Walter, the deer was likely killed in a different area, but “dumped on the side of the road in a Block Management Area.”
