Maine Game Wardens Seek Assistance on Deer Poaching Incident Near Daycare Center

[Brooks, Maine – Maine Warden Service] On the evening of Wednesday, November 18th at approximately 8:15 PM, the Maine Warden Service responded to a night hunting incident in the town of Brooks.  A deer was shot in the roadway, in close proximity to a daycare center on Route 139. The shot was fired directly at the daycare center, posing a serious concern for public safety. 
After collecting evidence at the scene and interviewing witnesses, the vehicle involved is believed to be an early 2000’s diesel model tan/gold GMC or Chevrolet extended cab pickup truck (please see attached photo of truck description).  The truck was last seen on Route 139 heading towards the town of Monroe.  This is the second night hunted deer in the same area of Waldo County in the past two weeks. 
Maine Operation Game Thief (OGT) has been contacted and has agreed to offer reward money for anyone with information leading to the conviction of the individuals responsible for this act of poaching.  Not only is this scenario unsporting and unethical, it also created a substantial public safety concern in this small town.
We are asking anyone with information to call:
OGT at 1-800-ALERTUS (1-800-253-7887 – you can remain anonymous)
Public Safety Dispatch in Augusta at 207-624-7076.
