SHADY COVE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police have charged a Jackson County man with aggravated animal abuse in the case of two black-tailed deer that were seen alive in the wild with arrows sticking out of their bodies.

OSP's Fish & Wildlife Division said Tuesday 36-year-old Daniel Logsdon faces charges of the unlawful take of an antlerless deer, aggravated animal abuse in the first degree and failure to report accurate information as a sex offender.

It wasn't immediately clear if Logsdon has an attorney.

Investigators launched a three-month investigation after residents spotted the impaled animals in the Shady Cove area.

Wildlife biologists were able to tranquilize the deer and remove the arrows.

One deer had an arrow embedded in its head. The other had one in its neck.

They are expected to survive.
