PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Neighbors in an East Lake neighborhood want answers after finding multiple deer shot with arrows.
According to Nancy Bloch, neighbors have put up a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot the deer.
“I’ve contacted FWC,” said Nancy Bloch, who shared photos of the shot deer with 8 On Your Side. “They are aware and they are stepping up their surveillance.”
One doe has been seen with an arrow through the neck. The other doe has an arrow through her leg and she has a fawn in tow.
“The deer cannot speak for themselves and we need to speak up for the deer,” Bloch said. “They may not be able to be rehabbed they may need to be put down but we need to figure out who did this and stop them ASAP.”
Neighbors have reached out to FWC. However, at this time FWC has not issued a response.
