POACHING -- Somebody used a vehicle to run down four pronghorns in an agricultural field west of Mud Lake, bordering the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), south of State Highway 33 just after midnight on Aug. 27.  Three does and a fawn were killed. 

An agricultural worker had noticed vehicle headlights in the field during the evening and notified the Idaho Department of Fish and Game when the animals were found dead the next day.   

  • What's going on out there?  Washington officers are looking for somebody who rand down, killed and wasted three bucks near Reardan.  See story.

A violation of this nature in Idaho could result in a reward of up to $1,000 to the person providing information leading to apprehension of those responsible for this senseless waste of Idaho’s wildlife, department officials said.

Call with info to the Citizens Against Poaching Hotline, (800) 632-5999.
