Conservation group offers $1,000 reward in elk poaching case

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News


A western Nebraska conservation group is offering $1,000 to double the reward being offered in an elk poaching case.

A total of $2,000 is now being offered to help determine who killed a bull elk last weekend in northwest Nebraska.

The elk that was abandoned in a wheat field southeast of Crawford was killed outside of the hunting season that ended Oct. 23.

Doyal Lund is president of the Panhandle Conservation Club of Scottsbluff. He says what bothers him the most is the waste of leaving the elk’s carcass to rot.
