Colo. officials seek information in poaching case

BRECKENRIDGE – Colorado Parks and Wildlife is trying to identify who illegally killed a bull elk and abandoned its carcass near Stafford Creek, about a mile from Interstate 70.

Wildlife officers estimate the bull was killed in early September. They say only the head, antlers and a few portions of the hide were removed while the meat was abandoned.

Breckenridge District Wildlife Manager Sean Shepherd says shooting big game and leaving the meat to rot is a waste of Colorado’s wildlife resources.

People with information are asked to call (877) 265-6648. The poaching hotline is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case.
