The following information comes from a Arizona Game and Fish Department news release:

The Arizona Game and Fish Department Operation Game Thief program is offering a reward of up to$1,250 for information leading to an arrest in connection with the killing of a doe at approximately 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, near Madera Canyon Road.

A poacher using a rifle killed the doe off U.S.Forest Service Road 488. He is described as a white male, age 30 to 35, 5 feet9 inches tall, weighing 165 pounds, with short, light brown hair and wearing camouflage.

He was accompanied by another white male, age late60s to early 70s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 175 pounds, with short salt-and-pepper graying hair. They may have been part of a hunting party camped in the area.

"Poachers are not hunters. They are thieves stealing wildlife from the citizens of Arizona," said Regional  Supervisor RaulVega of Game and Fish in Tucson.

Individuals with information about the case are urged to call the AGFD Operation Game Thief program at 1-800-352-0700 any time or day, anonymously if need be, and reference OGT#13-003020. Information may also be provided on-line at http://www.azgfd.gov/ogt_form.shtml.
