--Update--

A Barbour County deer farmer has raised the reward to find the person who shot its livestock.

Steve Toth now is offering $2,500 to anyone who can help identify the person shot a deer on Toth Farms.

Toth originally put up a $1,000 reward but the West Virginia Deer Farmers Association has upped the ante.

Someone shot the deer yards from Toth's house.

Toth said he expected it to be worth about $5,000 to the farm.

--Update--

The owner of a deer farm wants to find the person who shot one of his animals last week.

Steve Toth is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who helps identify the shooter.

Toth raises deer on his farm for breeding purposes not for food.

He said he doesn't know why someone would go out of the way to shoot a deer and leave it there but that's not his biggest concern.

"It was shot right by my house, and my wife was feeding that day, and my little girl was feeding the deer that day for me because I wasn't home that night," Toth said.

If you can help, call the Barbour County Sheriff's Department at 304-457-2352.
