Pa. Game Commission looking for dogs that chased down, killed deer in central Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is looking for the owner of two dogs that chased down and killed a deer in Luzerne County.

According to the commission, on Thursday a resident spotted the two dogs chasing after the deer near Apache Drive until it ran onto the frozen Shickshinny Lake and the dogs killed it.

Under Pennsylvania’s Game and Wildlife Code, it is unlawful to allow domestic dogs to chase wildlife. The area dog warden has been notified and the commission is asking anyone with information to call the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Northeast Region Office at 570-675-1143, or the Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-888-PGC-8001.
