Nevada game wardens are seeking any tips or information on a poached bull elk found on the south side of the Meadow Creek-Jarbidge road in Hunt Unit 071, approximately 10 miles west of the Diamond A Ranch.
"The bull was shot through the heart and left to rot only 50 yards from Forest Road 071," said Jason Jackson, game warden for the Nevada Department of Wildlife. "We really want to catch the criminal that stole Nevada’s resources by poaching and wasting this animal."
It is believed that the animal may have been shot sometime around the weekend of March 21. Anyone who may have information that can help game wardens investigate this crime is asked to call Operation Game Thief at (800)992-3030 or the Elko NDOW office at 775-777-2300.
