Cow Elk

A cow elk was shot and left to waste in a field on or before January 9, 2011.

“The elk, shot in the left shoulder, was discovered west of the Taylor Mountain Road in Uintah County,” said Bryan Clyde, conservation officer for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. “It was just left to waste.”

Clyde said there was one set of foot prints leading up to the elk and approximately 100 yards to the east was a gut pile.

“Both elk appeared to have been shot at the same time,” Clyde said. “A snowmobile was used to drag the second elk back to a vehicle where it was loaded.”

If you have information on this case, please contact Bryan Clyde, 435-790-4630. Names can be held confidential. The Division offers rewards for information leading to the successful prosecution of poaching incidents as one method to encourage the public to get involved in protecting wildlife.
