The Oregon State Police need your help to find the person(s) responsible for the waste of an elk found in the Owyhee Canal near Malheur Butte outside of Ontario.

A Fish and Wildlife Officer responded to the call on Friday, December 8, who located the skinned carcass of the adult elk. It was intact except for the front shoulders, which were nearby. Someone removed the head and lower legs and there was a long rope attached to the neck and a short rope holding the rear legs together.

If you have any information, call 1-800-452-7888.
