The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking information related to a recent poaching case in Campbell County.
On July 22, 2020, South Gillette Game Warden Levi Wood and Moorcroft Game Warden Jacob Miller responded to a report of a group of dead antelope on a road between the North Antelope Rochelle Mine and the Black Thunder Mine.
Upon arrival, the wardens found six adults and one fawn antelope shot and left near the road. The wardens believe the animals were killed the evening of July 19 or early July 20.
“To solve poaching cases like these, we really rely on the help of the public and someone’s willingness to come forward with information,” said Wood. “Even small, seemingly insignificant bits of information can help us piece together what happened and find out who is responsible.”
If anyone has information about this incident, please contact, Jacob Miller at 307-756-3357 or the STOP POACHING hotline at 1-877-WGFD-TIP (1-877-943-3847).
