Two West Coast men face poaching related charges following two separate incidents last month.

A pet trophy stag was killed, had its head removed and its body left in a paddock. 

Two stags were also shot on a farm at Butlers - one was taken and the other had its head removed and the carcass left in scrub.

A 30–year-old man and a 56-year-old man will appear in the Greymouth District Court next month.
