FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The state Game and Fish Department is looking for
whoever was responsible for illegally killing a cow elk near Flagstaff.
Wildlife manager Lee Luedeker said the shooting could have happened over the
weekend of March 16.
He said the animal was shot twice with a centerfire rifle
from Lake Mary Road, about 12 miles southeast of Flagstaff.
The elk was discovered about 100 yards off the road.
Investigators said they
believe whoever shot it was scared off by another vehicle, was spotlighting or
randomly fired at the animal.
