ASOTIN, WA - Officers from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife are looking for anyone who has information that could lead them to the person responsible for poaching two animals over the weekend.
A cow was found dead near Asotin Creek on Southfork Road Saturday afternoon. A bull elk was found yards away still alive, but suffering from a bullet wound. Both animals had been shot and left for dead. Officers had to put down the bull elk and now they're looking for answers.
Officers said they believe the incident happened late Friday night or early Saturday morning. The animals were found on Southfork Road near Asotin Creek.
The department is offering a reward to anyone who has information that could lead to the arrest of individuals responsible for the poaching and callers can be anonymous. If you have information you're asked to call Officer Matt Sabo at 509-780-9843. Video.
