A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for slaughtering eight elk in November or December 2003.

The dead elk were found about five miles south of Ferron, and about one mile west of SR-10, in Emery County. Division of Wildlife Resources conservation officers Carl Gramlich and Mike Milburn found the elk on Jan. 30 after receiving a report on the DWR's "Help Stop Poaching" hotline.

The eight elk, consisting of one bull and seven cows and calves, had been shot and left to rot.

Milburn is leading the investigation. Anyone with information is urged to call him at (435) 636-0277. Callers may remain anonymous but are encouraged to provide enough detail to help Milburn determine the validity of the information.
