Game and Fish officials are looking for information in connection to an elk poaching case near Keene. Two bull elk were shot and left in a field near the intersection of 40th St. NW and 109th Ave. NW, north of Keene. The bulls were most likely shot in the afternoon or evening of February 17, 2021. One of the bulls had only its head removed, and one was left intact. No meat was taken off of either animal.
If anyone has any information about the illegal taking of these animals, please contact the Report All Poachers hotline at 701-328-9921. Individuals can remain anonymous if they chose and are eligible for a reward if a conviction is made based on information they provide
