The Washington Humane Society said Friday it is seeking information about a white-tailed deer that was shot with an arrow and found in Southwest D.C.
The deer had to be euthanized as a result of its injuries, which appeared to be about a week old when it was found on Dec. 20.
The male deer was found in the 4000 block of First Place in Southwest D.C. and officials said they believe the animal was part of a herd that frequents a nearby wooded area next to Interstate 295.
The arrow wound was on the buck’s shoulder.
The humane society is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
