Help Georgia authorities nab whoever taped this deer to a road sign.

Georgia DNR officers are looking to the public for help in a bizarre case out of Atkinson County. An unknown person or persons may have poached a deer and then taped the carcass to a chair and road sign along Highway 90.

Photos of the deer first appeared on Facebook on Tuesday. And now WALB reports authorities are saying the deer was shot and they are investigating the incident further. A reward is also being offered for leads in this strange case.

Not only does it appear the deer was shot, but the person or persons responsible also apparently put a shirt on the animal and taped sunglasses to its head.

If you have any information on this strange case, contact the Georgia DNR on their poaching tip line at 1-800-241-4113.

Amazingly, this isn’t the first time we at Wide Open Spaces have heard of someone duct-taping a dead deer. Back in January, authorities in Ohio were looking for leads on the carcasses of several deer that were found with holes bored in their bodies and wrapped in tape before being dumped on a back road.

As far as we know, no arrests were ever made in that case. We’ll keep an eye on this story and bring you more information if authorities make an arrest.
