TWRA Says a Reward is Being Offered for Information Leading to an Arrest in the Pouching of an Elk

Officials are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest about the poaching of an elk in an east Tennessee wildlife management area.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says they have been unable to develop any leads in the illegal killing of an elk found December 31st in the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area in Claiborne County.

A hunter found the carcass of the elk, which had been shot. Officers say parts of the elk had been removed, including the head, “leading them to believe it was likely an antlered bull.”

There is no custom code to display.
