OCONTO, Wis. (AP) -- Conservation wardens say an increasing number of headless bucks have been found in northeastern Wisconsin.
State Department of Natural Resources warden Mike Stahl says investigators don't know why at least a half dozen bucks have been found without their heads since the last week of October.
The DNR say four were found in Oconto County's Little Suamico-Abrams area. One was found in the Town of Spruce and another in Marinette County.
Stahl tells WLUK-TV that because of various stages of decay, it's not known how all bucks were killed, however the DNR has been able to determine at least two were shot.
