WASHOUGAL, Wash. -- A deer near Washougal was recovering Tuesday after being shot in the face with an arrow.

Carol Wilmot said the doe and her offspring have been visiting her rural Washougal yard every day since she moved in a month ago.

She was horrified lastSunday when she saw the mother deer had been shot with an arrow right through her face.

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife officers were able to find the deer, tranquilize her and remove the arrow on Tuesday.
