Troopers seek tips about multiple elk poachings near Tillamook Henry Miller .

November 22, 2010

Troopers with the Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Division are asking for tips to help catch the poachers who killed three elk, leaving two to rot, in the Trask Unit near Tillamook.

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered by the Oregon Hunter's Association for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.

On Saturday, the Tillamook office of the state police got information about three illegally killed elk near the East Fork Bypass Road (Trask River).

Senior Trooper Lalo Guerra drove to the site and found one elk skinned and gutted with most of the meat taken, a second elk whose head was removed and no meat taken, and a third elk that was untouched.

Anyone with information is asked to call Guerra at (503) 815-3315 or you can remain anonymous and still be eligible for the reward by calling the Turn in Poacher (TIP) number at (800) 452-7888.
