PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a reward of up to $1,500 for information leading to a conviction in the suspected poaching of a female mule deer that was shot.

The department says Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies responding to a report of gunshots found the pregnant doe dead in a wash north of the Butcher Jones Recreation Area of Saguaro Lake on July 10.

Game and Fish Wildlife Manager Laura Orscheln says losing a pregnant doe that was nearly full term equates to the loss of two deer from the population.
