The Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife Division from the Tillamook office is asking for the public's help in locating the person(s) responsible for the unlawful killing and waste of a 5 point bull elk found ten days ago off Blaine Road eight miles east of Beaver in southern Tillamook County. A reward is offered through contributions from the State and local Tillamook County Chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association.
On February 4, 2013 at approximately 7:30 a.m., OSP was notified by a citizen that a bull elk was seen lying in a field near milepost 8 off Blaine Road. Another citizen stated about two hours earlier they saw nearly a dozen elk at the same location. A trooper responded to the location and seized the elk for salvage and evidence.
