Dumb Victim of
Hunt Taken as Pet
At French Ranch
One of the soul-racking sides
of the annual hunting season is the
number of wounded animals that
are left in the woods. Hunters,
generally, do all in their power to
run down the buck deer or bull
elk they know they have injured.
Sometimes, their best efforts are
not sufficient, however, and at
other times an animal is severely
wounded without the hunter be
coming aware of it.
Several cases of injured deer not
being found were reported in the
last hunting season. One such
dumb vitcim was found out at the
W. H. French ranch south of
Hardman this week.
The animal was discovered
standing alone in a thicket. It
stood there, listlessly, for two days,
apparently not caring to move and
plainly quite ill. Mr. French, learn
ing of the animal's condition from
his hired man, caused hay to be
taken to it, then contacted State
Patrolman Bill Francis at Hepp
ner. Mr. Francis and Logie Rich
ardson, president of Morrow Coun
ty Hunters and Anglers club, went
out to investigate, and Francis
gave Mr. French permission to
move the animal on Mr. French's
offering to treat it as best hp could.
The animal had been shot through
Mr. French took out his sled and
rope. As he approached the sick
animal shook its head in a faint
show of resistance, but he suc
ceeded in tying its legs, loaded it
on to the sled and took it to the
barn. At first it didn't want to eat
or drink, but Mr. French coaxed it
along, and he reported when in
town Saturday that it was show
ing signs of much improvement
and is becoming quite a pet.
The animal, a nice four-point
buck which Mr. French described
as ' "bench-legged" because of its
short legs and quite heavy body,
has been named "Bill Francis" in
honor of the game policeman.
