DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- A cow elk was shot and left in Douglas County last week, and Oregon State Police are seeking the public’s help to find those responsible.
Investigators said on Dec. 27 the animal was shot with a high caliber rifle and left to waste in a clear-cut between Tyee Access Road and Bullock Road about two miles west of the Wolf Creek Ranch.
Police are looking for a compact truck that was in the area that morning. They said two or more men in their late teens or early 20s were in the vehicle.
