OSP requests public's assistance after dead elk discovered near Silver Falls State Park


April 12, 2018

On April 2, troopers from the Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Division received a call reporting a dead elk off of Silver Ridge Road, west of Silver Falls State Park.

Troopers located the elk and were able to determine it was a large branch antler bull that had been shot and killed with a high-power rifle. The antlers were taken and the entire carcass was left to waste. The antlers were broken off at the bases and will appear similar to a naturally shed antler.

Troopers were able to recover a bullet from the elk carcass and are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect.
