Oregon group offers reward in bighorn sheep poaching case

Associated Press

SALEM – The Oregon Hunters Association is offering a reward of $15,000 for information leading to the arrest of a bighorn sheep poacher. The Oregon State Police said three rams were killed in Gilliam County in Eastern Oregon last month.

The Statesman-Journal reported the hunting group runs a “turn in poachers” program that annually pays more than $13,000 to informants in poaching cases.

The bighorn sheep were killed and left to waste along Interstate 84 east of Rufus on April 10.

The Oregon Hunters Association is asking anyone with information to call (541) 705-5330.
