“At approximately 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 2, a deer was found dead as a result of being shot with an arrow. The deer was found in the area near the Turtle Pond between 61 Ocean Blvd and 62 Spindrift Trail.
The Southern Shores Town Code Section 22-5 prohibits the shooting or discharging of arrows and makes it unlawful for any person to shoot or discharge, by bow or otherwise, any arrow or similar projectile of deadly force within the town’s corporate limits. The offense is classified as a Class 3 Misdemeanor.
This action, while not only illegal, is extremely dangerous in a residential community, especially in common areas where people recreate. It is not safe, and it is unacceptable.
Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to contact the Southern Shores Police Department at (252)-261-3331.”
