Game wardens have asked for the public's help in solving three deer poaching cases in two Kansas counties in the last week.

The two latest cases happened in Jewell County between Saturday night and Monday morning. The state Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says one deer carcass was found about 4.5 miles north of Glen Elder State Park and the other was approximately six miles from that location.

In each case the deer's head was cut off. Anyone with information can contact the Jewell County game warden at (785) 250-7028.

A buck was also poached southwest of Richfield in Morton County last Wednesday morning. Those with information in that case can reach Game Warden Lazar at (620) 388-7790

Those who would like to remain anonymous can call Operation Game Thief at (877) 426-3843. You could be eligible for a $500 reward.
