MUD LAKE – The Idaho Department of Fish & Game is asking the public to help find whoever used a vehicle to run down four pronghorn in an agricultural field west of Mud Lake, bordering the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), south of State Highway 33.

Three does and a fawn were killed.

The incident occurred just after midnight on Thursday, August 27, 2015.

According to IDFG, an agricultural worker noticed vehicle headlights in the field during the evening and contacted officials when the animals were found dead the next day.

IDFG is offering a reward of up to $1,000 to the person providing information leading to apprehension of those responsible for the crime.

Anyone with information about this incident or any other poaching can anonymously call the 24-hour CAP (Citizens Against Poaching) Hotline at 1-800-632-5999.
