Scott Co. Family Finds Pile Of Deer In Apparent Poaching Case

Posted: Updated:

SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Scott County family says they discovered piles of dead deer on their property and hope to track down the culprits.

The Bealmear's farm is about 200 acres. It sits well off the road in Scott County.

"It's just a bad, bad thing on anybody's farm," said Laura Bealmear.

The family was shocked when they came across a pile of seven dead deer with just the backstraps harvested. They say it's one of two such piles they've found on the farm in recent times.

"When I stumbled upon it, it just made me cry," Bealmear said. "It just made me sick to my stomach."

Bealmear says the backstrap is the choice cut of meat on the deer. But she says it's horrible that someone would leave the rest of the animals to rot. In addition, she says the pile of deer shows someone was trespassing on her property.

"Now we have to investigate how they got here," she said. "Was it an all-terrain vehicle? Did somebody actually drive a truck on our farm? Has the fence been cut?"

The family says they will contact the Scott County Sheriff's Office and the local game warden to find out who is responsible. Bealmear's 13-year-old son, Joseph, was first to spot the pile. He called it disturbing.

"You shouldn't do this," he said. "It's not right for you to, for you to take a life and just waste it."

The family also says it will install trail cameras to catch whomever is responsible.

Anyone witnessing poaching or littering is urged to call the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife at 800-252-5378.
