Oregon State Police Searching for Poachers

October 21, 2011

From Post-Journal.com

The Oregon State Police are on the lookout for a couple of poachers that left a dead cow elk near Camp Sherman. Sgt. David Pond with the OSP says they found out about the October 18th incident form other hunters in the area. "Well, there's several subjects in the area hunting. And they'd seen some elk go past them, towards another hunter and observed that guy take a couple of short or heard him shoot. And so they decided to walk over there and see if he had harvested anything, and they asked them if they'd hit anything, and the guy said "No, we missed" and then turned in a different direction and started walking away from where the elk were."

Pond says the suspects are described as an adult male, about 25 years old wearing a gray and blue plaid shirt and glasses. Also, about a 10 year old boy wearing an oversized orange vest that hung down below his knees. Besides leaving a dead animal; they shot a female elk in an area where only males can be hunted. If you have any information about these suspects or this incident, contact OSP.
