ELY (AP) -- State game wardens are looking for the poachers who illegally shot at least six elk in east-central Nevada.
The Nevada Department of Wildlife is seeking the public's help in the investigation into the killing of the four cows and two calves in two different locations in northern Lincoln County.
Chief Game Warden Tyler Turnipseed said Wednesday the sites are only about 10 miles apart but they don't believe the cases are connected.
He says almost all the meat had been left to rot on two cows and a calf found earlier this month on the west side of Mount Grafton near the White Pine County line about 40 miles south of Ely.
The first three dead elk were discovered on Oct. 5 near Patterson Pass about 10 miles further south.
