A wildlife conservation officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission received a tip on November 30 regarding a dead bull elk on State Game Lands 100 in Burnside Township, Centre County. A necropsy determined the cause of death was a gunshot wound.
They believe the elk was shot outside of the elk season in the first few days of the rifle deer season.
Any information regarding this case should be reported by calling 570-398-4744 or-888-PGC-8001.
