    Three more deer have been found shot and left to waste in open fields in Maine and one state game warden is calling the killings a "selfish, barbaric act."

    In addition to a pregnant doe found shot in Chesterville last week, game wardens say does were also found dead in Leeds, Livermore and Livermore Falls.

    Operation Game Thief, a private, nonprofit organization, upped its reward Tuesday to $2,500 for information that leads to the conviction of those responsible.

    Game Warden Dave Chabot tells the Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/1EnzHYt ) he believes the out-of-season deer killings are connected, most likely done by the same person or group.

    Chabot says in his 19 years of being a warden he has never seen such a vulgar display of waste.
