Following a report from a concerned citizen on Sunday, Nov. 22, Colorado Parks and Wildlife says it’s seeking information about seven elk that were shot and left roughly 20 miles north of Craig, northeast of the intersection of Moffat County Roads 109 and 3.
While looking into the report from the concerned citizen, CPW officers found all seven elk in close proximity to one another on Bureau of Land Management land. Officers believe the incident occurred on Friday, Nov. 20.
“We have processed the scene and gathered forensic evidence,” Assistant Area Wildlife Manager Mike Swaro said in a press release from CPW. “We are hopeful that anyone who was around the location late last week can provide us with information about vehicles or people who may have been in that area. Even little things can become the clues that will find those responsible.
