WINDOM -- A possible case of poaching in southwest Minnesota  is being investigated by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

According to DNR Conservation Officer Dustin Miller, he was contacted over the weekend by an individual about deer heads that were found at Pat’s Grove County Park, which is located in Cottonwood County, west of Windom and north of Heron Lake.

Miller went out to the park and found 14 deer heads that had been cut off. The heads were scattered throughout the park.

“There were no bodies present,” said Miller. “They were all whitetail bucks with the antlers cut off of them.”

Miller was unable to release any other information about the ongoing investigation at this time, but he asked that the public report any information that might be related to the case or poaching in the area to the Minnesota State Patrol; call (507) 476-4020.
