The Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish and Wildlife Division troopers from the Klamath Falls Area Command office and Lakeview work site are asking for the public's help to identify the suspect(s) responsible for an illegal elk kill late August in southern Lake County. A reward of up to $500 is offered by the Oregon Hunters Association Turn in Poacher (T.I.P) reward program for information leading to an arrest in this case.
 
According to OSP Senior Trooper Paul Randall, sometime shortly before August 24, 2010 a bull elk was killed, parted out and dumped near the Yokum Valley area in southern Lake County. The suspect(s) are also believed to be associated with other crimes involving theft and vandalism in the area.
 
Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call the T.I.P. (Turn in Poacher) line at 1-800-452-7888 or Senior Trooper Randall at (541) 891-1522.
 
The Turn-In-Poachers (T.I.P.) reward is paid for information leading to the arrest/conviction of person(s) for the illegal killing, taking, possession or waste of deer, elk, antelope, bear, cougar, big horn sheep, mountain goat, moose, upland game birds, and waterfowl. T.I.P. rewards can also be given for the illegal netting, snagging, or dynamiting of salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, or large numbers of any fish listed in Oregon Statute as a game fish. In addition, a reward may be issued for information that results in an arrest/conviction of a person who has illegally obtained Oregon hunting/angling license or tags.
