Help find the poachers who killed this elk.
Poachers killed a bull elk and sawed off the antlers while leaving the carcass and meat to spoil. What's worse is Kentucky Conservation Officers believe it is the end result of a guided hunt.
The incident happened near the county line between Floyd and Knott Counties in the vicinity of Bear Fork and Gibson Branch on October 16.
While the case has been under investigation since it happened, authorities are bringing it to the public's attention in hopes of generating new leads. They are offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to a prosecution and conviction of those responsible.
Anyone with information is being encouraged to contact Officer Sergeant Thomas at 606-595-8220 or call their tip line at 1-800-252-5378 (1-800-25-ALERT).
