LARAMIE — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking information on the illegal killing of an elk in Albany County.
The game department says deputies with the Albany County Sheriff's Office found a dead cow elk off of Rogers Canyon Road. The animal apparently had been shot in the hip on the evening of Sept. 12, or early the next morning. The poacher left the animal to suffer a slow death and didn't take any meat.
Laramie Game Warden Kelly Todd says he suspects the elk was shot from the road and is asking anyone with information to come forward to help solve the crime.
