Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife troopers need your help finding who is behind the poaching of a bull elk in the southwest corner of the state.
Investigators say dispatch received a report of an elk carcass near “Big Bend” in the small community of Illahe in Curry County. Troopers found a 6×5 elk that someone shot and left the meat to waste.
