MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Montana wildlife authorities are investigating the poaching of a mule deer buck in southwest Montana.

KECI-TV reports that Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game warden Justin Singleterry says the case involves a 4x4 buck that was found poached east of Corvallis in the Bitterroot Valley.

An investigation determined the buck was killed on location and then discarded down a steep embankment. Nothing was taken from the deer and all meat left to waste.

A member of the public reported the deer poached last Thursday. The deer may have been killed days before it was discovered.
