Elk NetworkWGFD: Help Find Elk Poacher in Wyoming

General | May 13, 2018

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) is seeking any information regarding a yearling cow elk that someone illegally shot about one half mile up the Little Greys Road past its confluence with the Greys River Road. It is believed the perpetrator killed the animal with a smaller caliber rifle sometime this past weekend (5/12/2018).

“This is especially frustrating to me, and likely all ethical sportsmen, to have an elk make it through the hard winter months only to be pointlessly shot and left to waste,” said James Hobbs, WGFD game warden.

If you have any information, call 307-885-3717 or 307-654-7743 or the STOP POACHING hotline at 1-877-WGFD-TIP (1-877-943-3847). Callers may remain anonymous and any information leading to an arrest and conviction may result in a reward of up to $5,000.00.
