Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officers are seeking information about the 6 Bull Elk that were shot and killed in the Knob Hill area of Park City between Dec. 20, 2019 and Jan. 15, 2020.

The area between Knob Hill and the Glenwild Residential Area where the remains were found is a known home to a herd of large, adult bull elk.

Local residents who have regularly seen the animals there noted that there seemed to be fewer animals than normal. 5 of the 6 Bull Elk were considered large enough to be trophy-size animals and meet the restitution value of $8,000 under Utah state code.

A reward may be available to anyone who provides information leading to the successful prosecution of the individual(s) responsible for this crime. Please contact the UTIP Hotline at 1-800-662-3337 or the DWR’s Ogden office at 801-476-2740 with any information. You can also submit a report online. Requests for confidentiality will be honored.
