General | February 17, 2020

Fish and wildlife officers in southeast Alberta need information to help them apprehend the person(s) responsible for poaching four elk. It happened on February 7, 2020, on private land just east of Highway 41 about 500 yards south of the Camp Wainwright military base, approximately 140 miles southeast from Edmonton.

The perpetrator(s) took only a small portion of meat from one of the animals and left everything else to waste.

If you have any information, call 1-800-642-3800. During business hours, you may also call the Provost office (780-753-2433) or the Vermilion office (780-853-8137).

For 2020, Remington partnered with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to increase the visibility of poaching incidents in an effort to reduce poaching.
