The incident happened around 7 May.

The remains of the deer were found in a field near to the A865 between Bayhead and Kilmuir North Uist.

The closed season is in place from the 1 April to the 31 October

Police in North Uist are appealing to anyone who has information about this incident to contact them on 101 quoting NH1052/18 or alternatively via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
