Columbia County, OR (KPTV) -

A reward up to $1,000 is being offered to catch the poacher or poachers who killed two bull elk in Columbia County.

The Oregon State Police Fish & Wildlife Division was notified of the dead animals found in the area of Pittsburg Road near Baker Point, about three miles from the Scappoose-Vernonia Highway, on Sunday evening.

Troopers determined the elk had been shot and left to waste. Investigators believe the elk were most likely shot Saturday.

A reward of up to $1000 is offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case. The reward is comprised of $500 from the Oregon Hunters Association Turn-In-Poacher program and $500 from the Oregon Hunters Association Columbia County Chapter.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact OSP Sergeant Joe Warwick through the Turn in Poachers (TIP) hotline at 1-800-452-7888. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
