The elk was poached only for its antlers and left to waste. The headless body was found Sunday just above Ridge Road, north of Council. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game estimates the elk was killed Nov. 25 or 26, weeks after bull elk season closed in that area.
Fish and Game Tuesday asked for the public’s help to solve the poaching.
