SHERIDAN — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is investigating the poaching of two bull elk and a white-tailed deer in northwest Sheridan County.

One bull elk and a white-tailed doe were discovered the weekend of Oct. 27 and the second bull elk was discovered Nov. 3. All three animals were killed on private land near the Wyoming-Montana state line. In each case, the animal was shot and left with no meat taken.
