Elk NetworkKentucky Seeks Additional Info in Elk Poaching Case

General | March 17, 2017

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife needs your help. It is seeking any information regarding those involved with the poaching of a bull elk around October 16, 2016, in the area of Bear Fork and Gibson Branch. The case has been under investigation since it occurred but conservation officers hope a renewed emphasis will bring forth additional information.

Poachers killed the bull, sawed off its antlers and left the meat to ruin. Officers believe those involved may have been part of a guided hunt.

A $1,000 reward is available for any information leading to the prosecution and conviction of those involved.

If you have any info, call 1-800-25-ALERT (1-800-252-5378) or contact KY Fish & Wildlife Conservation Officer Sergeant Thomas at 606-595-8220.
