More Poaching

I received this from the Colorado Parks and Wildlife... too darn ($*%&^(#)# many poaching incidents this year.  ::mad1   angry

In Pinewood Lake, a large bull elk was killed Thanksgiving night or early the next morning. The incident occurred off Larimer County Road 18E, just west of the intersection with James Park Trail. Only the head, hindquarters, and backstraps were removed from the bull and the remainder was left to rot.

In Boulder, a 4 x 6 mule deer was found dead on Wednesday, Nov. 30 off Cloverleaf Drive. The trophy-sized animal displayed wounds which may have resulted from being shot, though officers are unsure if it was shot at that location.

Operation Game Thief is offering a $500 reward in each case. Operation Game Thief provides rewards for information that leads to the arrest of a suspect in poaching cases. Anyone with information can anonymously report information toll-free to Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648 (877-COLO-OGT). Information about the case can also be e-mailed to game.thief@state.co.us.

Sucks.  My best friend went to CU in Boulder for 5-6 years, and I'd go visit him every year.  There were some decent deer around that area.
