OLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado Parks and Wildlife says it's looking for whoever is responsible for poaching a black bear in Colorado Springs.
It says the 400 pound male black bear was poached either late on the evening of July 9 or early on the morning of July 10 in the Cheyenne Mountain Estates Neighborhood on the southwest side of the city.
Anyone who has information is asked to contact Operation Game Thief at (877) 265-6648 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. A $500 reward may be available if you provide information that leads to a conviction.
CPW says it wants to remind the public that poaching is a serious crime and takes away wildlife opportunities from responsible hunters and the citizens of the state of Colorado.
