NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches County-based Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens have closed an ongoing case that started on Nov. 22, 2016 when two deer were killed and placed at the entrance of a land owner’s driveway near Garrison, and a rabbit was shot and put in the mail box.

The update was posted on the TPW Facebook page Friday.

According to the post, a raccoon and a roadrunner were also killed and left at the scene. The internal organs of one of the deer were draped over the mail box and strung along the fence.

“Game wardens received many phone calls from the public and conducted numerous interviews,” the post stated. “The case was ultimately cleared from tips to the Operation game Thief (OGT) hotline (800-792-GAME).”

The post stated that two people admitted to the crimes and have taken responsibility for their actions. Various charges and civil restitution amounts are pending.

Possible charges include poaching, wasted deer meat, and killing a protected species. Other possible violations could be shooting from the roadway and/or shooting at night. 

In a previous East Texas News story, Game Warden Sean Reneau said it was not a normal poaching case, and it was one he described as odd.

“Not your normal poacher,” Reneau said. “It was someone who maliciously did this to prove a point.”

According to the TPW, the two deer were shot illegally on County Road 280.

If a violation is currently in progress, please call 800 792-GAME (4263) immediately. Click here for the OGT Link.

As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
