Public's Help Sought in Elk Wasting Case

Idaho fish and Game is asking the public for information about two cow elk shot and left to waste off the Salmon River Road east of Riggins about January 9.

Responding to the initial report, Fish and Game conservation officer Chad Wippermann found the elk lying side by side. Neither had been field dressed.

Wippermann collected evidence at the scene, but he hopes to learn more about the case from an eyewitness or others who may know about the incident.

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

Citizens Against Poaching is offering a reward for information in the case, and callers may remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999, 24 hours a day. In addition, persons may also contact the Fish and Game McCall office at 208-634-8137.
