Public's Help Sought in Elk Wasting Case

Fish and Game is asking the public for information regarding the waste of a mature bull elk dumped on Shaw Road, south of the Grandview Highway in Elmore County on or about November 8.

Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is offering a reward for information in the case; callers may remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 24 hours a day, or contact the nearest Fish and Game office.

Responding to the initial report on November 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 may have knowledge of the incident.

"I am very interested in visiting with anyone who has information regarding this elk," Sellers said.
