Members of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game are seeking information on the poaching of at least 28 pronghorn antelope in the Idaho Falls Area that occured sometime in the final days of January and into February of this year.

A shocking case where the animals were left to rot, a senior conservation officer had this to say about the incident.

“This is the most offensive case of poaching I have seen in my entire career!” stated Regional Conservation Officer Doug Petersen.

Any information leading to a prosecution can be given anonymously to the Citizens Against Poaching hotline at 1 (800) 632-5999. They are also offering a $2,000 reward for tips that lead to an arrest.
