Two Bull Elk Poached in Michigan

In General by RMEF1 Comment

Michigan conservation officers in the northern Lower Peninsula are investigating the illegal killing of two bull elk, north of Atlanta.

The carcasses of the two animals were discovered Saturday off Montmorency County Road 622, near Roth Road. The location is about 7 miles north of Atlanta, just south of Clear Lake State Park.

“Both elk were shot, likely sometime around Nov. 15,” said Lt. James Gorno, a district law supervisor with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in Gaylord. “If anyone saw anything or has any information that would assist with the investigation, we’d like to hear from them.”
