(DEMING) - Authorities are trying to find out who shot and killed a three-legged deer that was a familiar sight around the Indiana community where it had raised several fawns.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources officers say the doe lost one of its legs several years ago and was regularly seen in Deming, about 25 miles north of Indianapolis, and the surrounding Hamilton County area.

TV station WRTV reports the deer was shot late Sunday or early Monday and left in a field.

The DNR said the deer was reported soon enough for them to issue a salvage permit for the meat, but they still want to find the person responsible. Tips from the public are being sought.
