Fish and Game looking for help to find elk poacher in Elmore County
Fish and Game is asking the public for information regarding the waste of a mature bull elk dumped on Shaw Road, south off the Grandview Highway in Elmore County on or about Nov. 8.
Responding to a report on Nov. 9, Fish and Game conservation officer Robert Sellers found the poached bull with an orange and black rope tied around the head. Both antlers had been sawn off, with all the meat left to waste. The carcass had been skinned and cut in half. Evidence was collected at the scene, but Sellers hopes to learn more about the case from an eyewitness or others who have knowledge of the wasting incident.
"I am very interested in visiting with anyone who has information regarding this elk," Sellers said.
Citizens Against Poaching is offering a reward for information in the case and callers can remain anonymous, or you can call your local Fish and Game office.
