Seeking Public's Help with Discarded Deer Parts Investigation

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is looking for the public's help in locating the person or people responsible for discarding deer parts in the New Liskeard area.

On April 1, 2020, shortly after 7:30 a.m., conservation officers in New Liskeard were contacted regarding a hind quarter of a deer that had been discovered in the ditch beside River Road in Dymond Township.

The suspect(s) involved in the incident discarded the entire hind quarter, which had been skinned and wrapped in plastic. The deer meat appeared to have been recently deposited.

Anyone with information about this occurrence is asked to contact Conservation Officer Peter Gilboe at 705-648-3750.

MNRF conservation officers continue to patrol and protect our natural resources during the COVID-19 outbreak and would like to remind everyone that by respecting seasons, sanctuaries, bag and possession limits we all help ensure our natural resources stay healthy. Visit Ontario's website to learn more about how the province continues to protect Ontarians from COVID-19.
