PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Authorities are looking for suspects after an elk was hunted and taken from the White River Wildlife Area near Tygh Valley.

Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Troopers were notified on Thursday, September 19, that an elk had been taken. They have descriptions for 3 vehicles they believe were involved: a late-model Toyota Tacoma pickup with a soft bed-trooper canopy, roof-mounted tent, and a motorcycle rack that held a late-model KTM 450 XC—or similar dirt bike—and a grey Chevy or GMC pickup with matching canopy.

Any information on the people connected to these vehicles should be reported to OSP. The state of Oregon has a TIP program that offers point rewards or monetary compensation for any information that leads to an arrest or citation.

Information on this case could lead to the reward of 4 points, or $500 in cash.
