Elk killed near Baynes Lake

Three mature cow elk were shot near Baynes Lake last week. The Conservation Officer Service (COS) found the elk after receiving a call from a resident on March 22. It is not currently elk hunting season and the carcasses were in a clear cut, easily accessible area. COS commented that it appeared the animals were all healthy prior to being shot. No meat was salvaged even though a vehicle could have driven right up to the elk.

COS believes the elk were shot between Wednesday, March 19 and Friday, March 21.

The COS are looking for information on who may have been responsible. Callers can remain anonymous. Please call the COS at 1-877-952-7277.
