Public's Help Needed In Poaching Cases


On November 15, 2021, an OSP Fish & Wildlife Trooper received a report of a cow elk that was found dead in a wooded area near Testament Creek Road off Bald Mountain Road in Tillamook County. It was reported that hunters in the area heard approximately 14 shots in the early morning hours of opening the first season elk. The hunters then located the dead cow and reported it to OSP. Three vehicles seen leaving the area could possibly be related.


The model year of the vehicles seen is an approximation, but they are believed to be a silver, lifted, 2005 Dodge Ram, a blue, 2010 Dodge Ram, and an older model maroon Ford F150.

The Oregon State Police is seeking public assistance with information about this poaching case.
