ASH FORK, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Game and Fish Department is looking for whoever is responsible for illegally killing a pronghorn doe in northern Arizona.

The department says the doe was shot the morning of Feb. 23 near Stone Lake, about 20 miles northwest of Ash Fork.

Game and Fish spokesman Zen Mocarski said Monday that the investigation remains ongoing.

He says physical evidence has been recovered from the scene, but the public’s help is critical.

A $750 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the case. Another $750 reward is available upon conviction.

The maximum penalty for knowingly taking big game during a closed season is six months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Violators also could face civil assessments, and have their hunting, fishing and trapping privileges revoked.
