$3,000 in rewards offered in refuge elk poaching

 

Poached elk

 

LAS VEGAS, N.M. – The Department of Game and Fish and Las Vegas, N.M., area landowners, businesses and residents are offering $3,000 in rewards for information leading to the poachers who killed two bull elk and left them to rot at Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge.

“It is outrageous and unacceptable that someone would kill these animals and leave them to waste,” said Rob Larrañaga, refuge manager. “These criminals stole two prized elk that could have been harvested in a youth hunt being planned by the refuge.”

The elk were discovered Nov. 20 in an area of the refuge also used by hikers, birders and photographers. Conservation officers determined that both elk had been shot.

The department is offering a $1,200 reward through its Operation Game Thief program, and Las Vegas area landowners, businesses and the Friends of Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge are offering another $1,800 for information leading to charges being filed in the case.

Anyone with information about this case or any other wildlife crime is urged to call Operation Game Thief toll-free, (800) 432-4263. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for rewards if charges are filed.
