JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Police say someone is killing off deer on a private Westside wildlife preserve. The Double D Ranch has lost two bucks and a doe in the last two days.

Early Tuesday morning Sonny Griffin, the owner of the ranch, heard gunshots somewhere on his property.

Griffin told First Coast News, "The next morning I came down here and found where they had gutted the deer, and pulled him over the fence."

The incident Griffin is talking about happened early Tuesday morning. Early Wednesday morning he found another deer shot, and one missing.

The ranch is a favorite for school field trips to see wildlife up-close.

"I just have them for kids to come look at, people from out of town to look at. It's kind of something I just enjoy doing for a hobby," said Griffin.

The ranch is offering a $1,000 reward for anyone with information that will lead to an arrest and conviction.

If you have any information call First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS. You'll remain anonymous and you could receive a reward up to $1000.
