 Police seek tips leading to poachers


This spike bull elk was found shot through the lungs last week near County Road 62 on Mt. Harris. Oregon State Police’s Fish and Wildlife Division are investigating the illegal take of the bull. OSP Senior Trooper Marcus McDowell is working with the Turn in Poachers program to acquire a reward for any tip leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect, he said.  The bull was shot through the lungs and left to waste. Evidence was recovered from the bull and sent to the lab for analysis.  The bull was killed between the evening hours of Aug. 17 and early Aug. 18, police said. Anyone with information on the take should contact McDowell at 541-531-5906. McDowell said any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, can help in the investigation.
