LARAMIE, Wyoming — Wardens with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department are investigating the poaching of two antelope near Medicine Bow on Saturday.

Elk Mountain Game Warden Ryan Kenneda says a landowner discovered a yearling doe had been shot along Marshall Road, northeast of Medicine Bow in Albany County, sometime between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday. The investigation found that an adult doe antelope also had been shot during the same period.

The yearling was gutted and its legs were cut off and placed in a star or cross formation with the animal's heart placed inside. No meat was taken from either animal.

Wardens are looking for a red pickup truck with aggressive tires.
