Deer shot by arrow in Maple Ridge had to be euthanized

Conservation officers looking for information about Maple Ridge incident

Conservation officers are requesting the public’s help to get information about a deer that was shot with an arrow, seen wandering in the Silver Valley area of Maple Ridge.

On Oct. 24, at 5:50 p.m., the Conservation Officer Service received a report that there was a deer that was shot with an arrow wandering around the 24000 block of Fern Crescent in Maple Ridge. Both RCMP and conservation officers responded. The deer was euthanized, because it was suffering and would not have survived the injury.

Officers canvassed the homes in the area, but did not turn up any information about who might have shot the deer with the arrow.

“The deer’s meat was determined to be salvageable and was donated that evening,” said a press release from the Conservation Officer Service.

The COS is requesting that anyone with information about this occurrence to please call the Report All Poachers and Polluters line at 1-877-952-7277 or online at forms.gov.bc.ca/environment/rapp.

Callers can remain anonymous when providing information, and if it leads to a successful prosecution you could be eligible for a reward.
