LAS VEGAS (AP) - Southern Nevada game wardens are putting up a $1,000 reward in hopes of finding who killed three deer in an apparent thrill kill.

Officials with the Nevada Department of Wildlife say two does and a fawn were shot and left near the Cold Creek community northwest of Las Vegas on Jan. 25. The location is about six miles away from the High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs.

Authorities say a game warden who came to the scene found one of the deer still alive, but its back legs were paralyzed by a bullet and the warden had to euthanize it.

Nevada chief game warden Rob Buonamici says the act was "a cruel and stupid waste of wildlife" and apparently happened at night, which is an additional crime.
