DNR investigating elk poaching incident

Michigan conservation of cers in the northern LowerPeninsula are investigating the illegal killing of two bull elk, north of Atlanta.

The carcasses of the two animals were discovered Saturday off Montmorency County Road 622, near Roth Road. The location is about 7 miles north of Atlanta, just south of Clear Lake State Park.

“Both elk were shot, likely sometime around Nov. 15,” said Lt. James Gorno, a district law supervisor with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in Gaylord. “If anyone saw anything or has any information that would as- sist with the investigation, we’d like to hear from them.”

Tips may be left anonymously, and monetary rewards of- ten are offered for information that leads to the arrest of violators.

To contact investigators, please call the DNR Law En- forcement Division at the Gaylord Operations Center at 989-732-3541 or call or text the 24-hour Report All Poaching line at 800-292-7800.

Michigan conservation of cers are fully commissioned state peace of cers who provide natural resources protec- tion, ensure recreational safety and protect citizens by pro- viding general law enforcement duties and lifesaving oper- ations in the communities they serve.
