The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and State Police are investigating a southern Oregon poaching case.  Investigators say the carcasses of two elk were found along I-5 near Glendale, early Saturday morning.  A bull was left entirely to waste, although troopers were able to salvage some meat for charity.  Poachers processed and removed meat from the cow, which authorities say would’ve taken substantial time by lantern or flashlight.


Investigators believe the elk were shot from the freeway.


A $1,000 reward is offered for information that leads to an arrest.  OSP Fish & Wildlife is urging anyone with information about the identity of the person(s) or vehicle, in this case, to call the OSP tip line at 1-800-452-7888, *OSP (*677), or email at Reference case number SP22288310.
