Colorado Parks and Wildlife is asking for help solving a poaching crime. Wildlife officers found three pronghorn antelope in a construction dumpster on Torreys Peak Way in Falcon on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
Portions of the animals were missing, but large amounts of meat were wasted.
Anyone who saw any suspicious activity or has information should call Parks and Wildlife Officer Steve Cooley at 719-227-5284 or call a toll-free poaching tip line 1-877-265-6648. Verizon cell phone users can dial #OGT, or tips can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone who comes forward with information that leads to a citation is eligible for a cash reward from the Operation Game Thief fund. In some cases, people who turn in poachers are eligible for preference points or a free hunting license for a future season.
