In General, Uncategorisedby RMEFLeave a Comment

Rocky Mountain National Park is offering up to a $2,000 reward for information regarding elk poaching incidents that occurred in the park in September of 2018.

Park rangers discovered two dead bull elk, one on Sept. 12 and another on Sept. 22. In both instances, rangers determined someone killed the animals either on the morning they were found or the night before.

“Rocky Mountain National Park’s wildlife is a resource for all visitors to enjoy viewing and appreciate,” Kyle Patterson, Rocky Mountain National Park spokesman, told the Denver Post. “The individual(s) who assisted or carried out these poaching incidents robbed future park visitors of this experience.”

In order to be eligible for a reward, the information must be relevant and lead to an arrest or criminal conviction.

If you have any information, call 888-653-0009, 720-981-2777 or 800-332-4155.
