Fish and Game Seeks Help Solving Elk Poaching

Idaho Fish and Game is asking for help in determining who shot and wasted a young bull elk found along the Big Creek Road near Harvard. Authorities say the young bull, possibly a spike, was shot within the past week, and may have been moved from where it was shot and dumped over the edge of the road. The elk was not field dressed, and the only thing removed was the antlers. "What a disgusting violation of the sportsman's code of ethics," said Senior Conservation Officer Mike Dafoe of Moscow. "We need the citizens' help in solving this crime." Anyone observing suspicious activity in this area or with information about this crime is encouraged to contact Fish and Game Officer Dafoe at 208-669-1024, the Fish and Game office in Lewiston at 208-799-5010 or the Citizens Against Poaching hotline at 1-800-632-5999. Callers may remain anonymous and will be eligible for a reward.
