Rock Springs Game Warden Seeks Information in Poaching Cases
Three poaching cases are being investigated in Sweetwater County, and Rock Springs Game Warden Dave Hays is looking for information to help solve the crimes.
One pronghorn antelope was shot and left in hunt area 92, south of Eden, on Sept.10. Another was killed on Sept. 20, east of Pine Mountain in area 112. The third case involves a bull elk.
“The bull elk was shot out of season on September 18th from Highway 430 at approximately 10:30 p.m. in hunt area 124, with those suspects using a spotlight,” said Hays. “No suspects have been identified in any of the three cases so far.”
Anyone can call 1-877-WGFD-TIP (1-877-943-3847) to provide information about these cases. Tips can also be reported to Rock Springs Game Warden Dave Hays at 307-382-6602 or online at wgfd.wyo.gov. Callers can remain anonymous, and may be eligible for a $5,000 cash reward.
Hays adds, “I am hoping someone saw something during any one of these poaching incidents and will give me or the STOP Poaching Hotline a call so the violators will be held accountable for their actions.”
