Video Report: Snow-Sled Deer Slaughter; $10,000 Reward
Five deer died in what [Wisconsin’s Waupaca County Sheriff's detective Don] Conat calls a "thrill killing" of deer by running over them with snowmobiles.
Investigators also say they've found snowmobile parts near the scene. They're hoping those parts yield fingerprints or identifying information on at least one of the sleds.
Conat says snowmobile clubs have offered a combined $9,000 in rewards for information leading to arrests. Waupaca County Crime Stoppers has offered another $1,000.
