Salem News reports:
A Prineville [OR] man arrested Friday for numerous wildlife-related crimes in what one trooper described as a "serial-type killing of wildlife."
Oregon State Police Fish & Wildlife Division investigators say that during the past several years north of Prineville, over a dozen deer have been found dead after they were shot and left to waste beside Forest Service Roads.
In August 2007, the OSP department aircraft helped locate a suspect spotlighting in the general area where these deer were found.
OSP Fish & Wildlife troopers contacted the suspect identified as 60-year old Ronald A. Livermore of Prineville. . . .
Investigators believe Livermore, who admits he is primarily a vegetarian, would usually drive around in the darkness shining his spotlight, and when he saw eyes he would just shoot at them and then drive on looking for more.
