There have been no new leads in the investigation into the poaching of seven antelope in Campbell County, according to South Gillette Game Warden Levi Wood.
Wood and Moorcroft Game Warden Jacob Miller discovered the antelope, including six adults and one fawn, shot and left by the side of a road near the North Antelope Rochelle and Black Thunder coal mines in southern Campbell County on July 22. They estimate the animals had been shot sometime within the previous two days.
“It’s still an open investigation, and we’re still moving forward,” Wood said Thursday. “We gather as much information as we can, but often it hinges on help from the public.”
Anyone with information is urged to call Miller at (307) 756-3357 or the state’s “Stop Poaching” hotline at (877) 943-3847. Anyone with information leading to a conviction may be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
