The Arizona Elk Society has partnered with the Arizona Game and Fish Department to increase the reward to $8000. The two elk were poached north of Ash Fork on September 24, 2008.

Scott Poppenberger, Arizona Game and Fish Department Wildlife Manager calls this the most senseless act he’s investigated in the past fifteen years. Anyone who has information about this incident is asked to contact Operation Game Thief at 1-800-352-0700.
