Info sought on poachers

Conservation officers are looking for information about two game animals shot illegally in the Kelowna area in the past week or so.

The public is being asked for information about two game animals shot illegally in the past week or so in the Kelowna area.

Conservation officer Ed Seitz asks anyone who was in the area of the Gillard Forest Service Road in the Mission area about the middle of October to call the RAPP line if they saw a 5×5 elk shot.

Only six point and larger elk were in season, but they received a tip that someone had seen this elk being loaded into a truck at the end of the Gillard Forest Service Road.

“We’re giving him an opportunity to turn himself in before we pursue it further. If we can deal with it in an ethical manner that would be preferred,” he said.

Anyone with information can call the Report All Poachers and Polluters toll-free line at: 1-877-952-7277.

As well, he said a 3×4 moose was found shot and left in the trees off the Pooley Forest Service Road, off Highway 33 around Oct. 21, last weekend.

Although it has been reported, he didn’t have much information on the incident as yet.

If you saw anything suspicious in the area, call the RAPP line.
