Public’s Help Sought in Elk Wasting Case

Idaho Fish and Game is asking the public for information regarding a cow elk shot and left to waste along the Middle Fork of the Boise River Road near Alexander Flats on April 6.

Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is offering a reward for information in the case and callers can remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 twenty four hours a day.

Responding to the initial report, Fish and Game conservation officer Ben Cadwallader found the dead elk lying within sight of a nearby camping area. The animal had not been field dressed.

Evidence was collected at the scene, but Cadwallader hopes to learn more about the case from an eyewitness who might have details regarding campers in the area at the time of the poaching. “I am very interested in visiting with anyone who has information regarding this case,” Cadwallader stated.

In addition to the CAP hotline, persons may also contact the Fish and Game Nampa office at 208-465-8465.
