TRENTON, Maine — Police report that someone damaged a mailbox on Oak Point Road last week by throwing a deer carcass at it.

Chief deputy Richard Bishop of the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department said Monday that a black plastic garbage bag with deer parts inside was used to damage the mailbox. The incident was reported on Nov. 14.

“The deer inside was all cut up,” Bishop said Monday. He added he was not sure if the parts inside were the entirety of one dismembered deer or not.

Bishop said the act appears to have been intentional vandalism but added that deputies have no suspects. He said the complainant heard what sounded like a truck revving its engine and then speeding off the night of Nov. 13, but that the resident did not look outside to try and get a glimpse of the vehicle.

The resident found the bag and his mailbox lying on his front lawn the next morning, according to Bishop.

The chief deputy said anyone with information about the incident can call the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department at 667-7575.
