$20,000 Reward Offered In Decapitated Deer Mystery

LAKE BUTLER, Fla. -- Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials are trying to figure out who killed and decapitated a prized, 12-point deer from a game farm in Union County.

The white-tailed deer, who was a breeding buck named Peabody, was killed at Shadd's Game Farm on Sept. 6, according to authorities.

Game farm owner John Shadd is offering the $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the crime.

Authorities said the deer was valuable. A single test tube of Peabody's sperm sold for $10,000.
