Colo. wildlife officers investigate poaching cases

(AP) — Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are investigating two cases in which hunters illegally killed an elk and abandoned the carcass.

Officials say that in one case near Telluride last month, someone shot a bull elk with a rifle, removed its head and partially field dressed it. They say the elk was dragged by an all-terrain vehicle and was left in within a gated community, where it was found Sept. 28.

Meanwhile south of Denver, officers are trying to determine who removed the head and part of the hide of a bull elk while leaving the rest of the carcass to rot in Louviers, between Chatfield State Park and Sedalia. It was believed to have been killed between Sept. 3 and Sept. 5.



A conviction could mean a hunting license suspension.
