Oregon State Police Fish & Wildlife Division troopers are asking for the public's help to identify the suspect(s) responsible for illegally dumping the remains of 5 antelope carcasses found Thursday morning in the Marvin Hill area northwest of Sutherlin.
 
On September 29, 2011, OSP Fish & Wildlife troopers found the carcasses of five antelope on Seneca Timber Company land in the first clear-cut along Marvin Hill Road about one mile south of Highway 138W. Several of the antelope were salvaged and one was left to waste. Troopers also found several items littering the site.
 
Anyone with information regarding these antelope, including any suspicious people or vehicles seen in the area, is asked to contact Senior Trooper Wayne Merritt or Trooper Jason Stone at (541) 440-3406.
 
A reward of up to $250 is offered by the Oregon Hunter's Association Turn-In-Poacher reward program for information that leads to any arrest and conviction in this case.
