PA - Woman Finds Deer Head In Mailbox

Butler Co. Woman Finds Deer Head In Mailbox


State Police in Butler County are investigating two bizarre incidents involving dead deer.

On Tuesday, Sue Garton, of Slippery Rock Township, found what someone left in her mailbox unsettling.

"I opened the door and I thought it was a fuzzy yarn scarf or something - I even touched it. And then looked and saw that it was blood, and bones and fur and I slammed the door and screamed," she told KDKA.

State Police removed the deer's head from her mailbox. The Garton family has 45 acres and doesn't allow hunting.

About 12 miles away in Venango Township, a carcass was left outside of the gate of the Sloboda family's deer farm.

"The deer carcass that was throwed over top of the gates - a head, a hide, hooves strewn through the property," Rocco Sloboda said.

But in this incident, the family thinks they know the motive. They think someone's angry that no hunting is allowed on their 400 acres.

Sloboda is offering a cash reward for information that leads to a conviction in his case.
