A man arrested for illegally dumping deer remains in Schuyler County allegedly made one big mistake.
He left his “either sex” state deer tag on one of the deer. WETM-TV reports that’s how Environmental Conservation Officers tracked down the man. They say he failed to report two of the three deer he harvested and dumped the remains of one into Cayuta Creek, which is a protected waterway.
The man, whose name has not been released, will face a misdemeanor and four violations when he appears in Catharine Town Court.
