PITTSBURGH (KDKA)–A disturbing social video allegedly showing two men torturing a deer has prompted a response from the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
In a Facebook post, the Game Commission says it’s aware of the video purporting to show individuals assaulting an injured deer. The incident is currently being investigated by Pennsylvania State Game Wardens.
The Game Commission tells KDKA News it is in the very early phase of the investigation, and although the two individuals in the video are reportedly from Brookville, that doesn’t mean the event happened in Brookville.
It’s yet to be determined when and where it happened.
The incident falls under the jurisdiction of the Game Commission because wildlife was involved.
If you have any information related to the video, your are asked to report it to the Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-888–PGC-8001 or the Game Commission’s Northwest Region Dispatch Office at 814-432-3187.
