GREEN RIVER, WYO \u2013 Wyoming Game and Fish Department Cokeville Game Warden Neil Hymas is seeking information on yet another bull elk that was shot and wasted; this time in Elk Hunt Area 104.\u00a0The number of\u00a0elk confirmed shot and left to waste in the region now totals\u00a011. Many of the department\u2019s poaching cases are solved with the public\u2019s assistance and they appreciate this assistance a great deal.\r\n\r\nA cow elk and a branched antler bull elk were shot near the main Big Park Road at Grindstone Creek northeast of Cokeville on the evening of Wednesday, October 25, one day after the antlered elk season closed in Elk Hunt Area 104. Elk harvest has been slow lately and someone most likely knows of a person or persons coming home late on October 25 with a cow elk from the Cokeville area. Also, anyone who was in this area on October 25 is asked to consider anything they saw or heard that might possibly be tied to this poaching incident.\r\n\r\n\u201cA witness described two male suspects in a white pickup truck, possibly a Ford, with a four-wheeler in the back, loading the cow elk into the truck after dark at around 8:00pm on Wednesday night,\u201d Hymas said. \u201cAt least one of the suspects appeared to be in his late 50\u2019s. The bull elk was laying in plain sight within 10 yards of the cow elk gut pile and was not salvaged or reported. It was apparent that the bull was intentionally abandoned and allowed to go to waste.\u201d\r\n\r\nAnyone with information on this or any wildlife violation may call the Stop Poaching Hotline at 1-877-WGFD-TIP (1-877-943-3847).

Green River regional game wardens are hopeful somebody saw something that might help solve these and the other poaching cases.
