2 Elk Poached Southwest of Flagstaff



FLAGSTAFF - The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering up to a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the poaching of two elk in a portion of Unit 7M southwest of Flagstaff on Tuesday Dec. 3.

Arizona Game and Fish Department Officials say the elk were taken in Hunt Unit 7M along USFS road 231, also known as the Woody Mountain Road, near Woody Mountain and adjacent to Hunt Unit 6B. The location is approximately one mile east of Rogers Lake and two miles west of the Flagstaff Arboretum.

An antlerless elk hunt was taking place nearby in Unit 6B at the time the poaching occurred. There were no hunts going on in Unit 7M. Evidence found at the scene indicates that two elk were taken. A spike bull was found in the field and evidence found nearby indicates a cow elk was the other animal poached. At least two vehicles have been placed at the scene.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-800-352-0700.
