UTAH COUNTY, Utah — Conservation officers are asking for the public’s help locating the individual(s) responsible for allegedly dumping the headless body of a buck near Utah Lake.

A press release stated that on Thursday, a headless buck deer was discovered by the western shore of Utah Lake, in an irrigation station near Mosida Farms.

Conservation officers with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources determined that the buck had been shot with a rifle, most likely within a week before it was discovered.
