RIGGINS, Idaho (KLIX)-Two cow elk were illegally shot earlier in January near Riggins. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has asked anyone with information to call the Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) hotline or their regional office. The two cows were found on January 9, along the Big Salmon Road that has a lot of morning traffic. Conservation officers found much of the meat from the animals had been taken before they arrived. Idaho Fish and Game said it is possible someone might have seen the suspect vehicle on the north bank of the Big Salmon Road close to the Lake Creek Bridge. CAP can be reached at 1-800-632-5999 or the regional office at (208)799-5010 to leave a tip. People leaving a tip can remain anonymous.
