Help from the public is needed to solve the illegal killings of several big game animals.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is offering a reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for taking a large bull elk, a pronghorn, and two mule deer.
Officers report the bull elk was found in a field along Squaw Mound Rd southeast of Crawford in Dawes County over the weekend.
The pronghorn and the mule deer were recently found near Hemingford in Box Butte County. All three of the animals were does.
These killings follow similar illegal killings a month ago near Valentine and Kimball.
People who wish to report information may contact a conservation officer or the Nebraska Wildlife Crimestoppers program at 800-742-7627. More information about the Wildlife Crimestoppers program is HERE.
