Illegal hunters are being sought after an incident between Enderby and Salmon Arm.

A cow elk was killed and left in a field on Deep Creek Road on Nov. 27.

“Shooting at night is dangerous and unlawful,” said Brent Smith, a conservation officer with the Ministry of Environment.

Also, there is never an open season for cow elk.

The incident apparently began when a pickup truck entered the field at about 8 p.m., used a light improve visibility and fired a shot.

The truck then left the scene but returned again at 9 and 11:30 p.m. Shots were fired both times.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 1-877-952-7277.
