Game wardens at the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) are seeking the public’s help to solve the illegal killing of at least six elk, including four cows and two calves, in two different incidents in Lincoln County. One group of elk was found on the west side of Mount Grafton and another group was discovered near Patterson Pass. Although the two different incidents were discovered near one another, game wardens do not think the cases are related.
"This level of senseless wildlife crime is unacceptable," said Tyler Turnipseed, Chief Game Warden at NDOW. "People wait years for the opportunity to hunt and harvest an elk, and it is unconscionable that some thoughtless person would shoot so many of these animals and leave them to rot."
