Rangers are investigating the killing of two elk in the park. Two mature bull elk were found dead on the morning of Tuesday, January 31st, along Red Valley Road in the northern part of the park. Both elk were found intact, with no attempt to take the meat or antlers. It appears that someone was driving along the road, saw the elk, and just shot them. Rangers are working with South Dakota Game, Fish and Park conservation officers on this investigation. The park is offering a thousand dollar reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever is responsible for this crime.
