A mature mountain goat, suffering from at least three crossbow-related wounds was euthanized by Fish and Game conservation officers earlier this week.
Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is offering a reward for information in the case and callers can remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 twenty four hours a day.
Reports of the injured female (nanny) goat came to Fish and Game via the CAP hotline and Facebook; an accurate description helped officers quickly locate the goat just off Hells Canyon Road, south of Hells Canyon Dam. After watching the nanny for more than an hour, the officers determined that the animal was suffering and needed to be euthanized.
