Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife Division troopers are asking for the public's help for information to identify the suspect(s) responsible for Sunday's unlawful kill and waste of a Roosevelt Elk near Toledo. A reward is offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.
On December 19, 2010 OSP Fish & Wildlife troopers located a cow Roosevelt Elk that had been shot and left to waste off the 1000 Line Road near North Beaver Creek Road outside Toledo. The elk was found in a clear cut area down an embankment and appeared to have been shot within the last 24 hours. Troopers were not able to salvage the meat.
OSP urges anyone with information concerning this poaching incident to call the OSP Turn in Poacher (TIP) line at 1-800-452-7888. The Oregon Hunter's Association in cooperation with Leupold and Stevens is offering a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this crime.
