The meat on the cow elk had been removed from its carcass. The shooting likely occurred between April 4 and April 6, according to the division.

Anyone who saw vehicles near Wild Cow Wash during those days, or has other information about the shooting, is asked to call the poacher hotline at 1-800-662-3337.

Rewards are available and callers can remain anonymous.
