From the Washington Humane Society:
“On Friday December 20, 2013 the Washington Humane Society (WHS) Humane Law Enforcement Department discovered a male white-tailed deer severely injured from an arrow wound to the shoulder area on the 4000 block of 1st Place, SW, near the intersection of 1st Place and South Capital St., SW.
Due to the severity of his injuries, the deer was humanely euthanized and WHS is now offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.
WHS Officers have reason to believe that this buck was a member of a heard which frequented the area often, likely from the wooded area adjacent to the Anacostia Freeway. The wound appeared to be approximately 1 week old when the buck was discovered on December 20, 2013.
If you have any information about this case, please contact the
