It’s hunting season, and every year the Oregon State Police see too many instances of poaching. The OSP and the Oregon Division of Fish and Wildlife are asking your help to find the person responsible for killing a cow elk, leaving the body to rot in the Metolius Unit about five miles west of Camp Sherman. OSP reports: on October 18th, around 5 p.m., an adult male accompanied by a boy about 10 years old killed the female elk in an area where only bull elk can be hunted. The man is described as about 25 years old with glasses, wearing a gray and blue plaid shirt. The boy is described wearing a large orange vest that hung down below his knees and may have been carrying a rifle. Authorities donated the meat to a local raptor rehabilitator. Anyone with information on this incident are asked to call Oregon State Police. A $500 reward is offered by the Oregon Hunters Association “TIP” Program.
