Information Sought on Nebraska Antelope Shootings

April 5, 2010.

A reward is being offered for information about antelope that were shot and left lying in Kimball County, Nebraska.

There have been four incidents in recent months in which a total of seven antelope where found shot and lying within a few miles of each other. The most recent included two antelope found March 30 about 14 miles south of Dix near the Nebraska-Colorado border.

Conservation officer Scott Brandt of Gering said the most recent antelope found, a buck and a doe, were lying near a road, about 20 yards apart. They were gut-shot with a large-caliber rifle. In the three earlier incidents, the antelope were shot in the neck with a small-caliber rifle.

The reward of up to $1,000 is for information that leads to a conviction in the case.

To report any information on the antelope, or any game law violation, call Nebraska Wildlife Crimestoppers toll-free at (800) 742-7627. Callers may remain anonymous.

Nebraska Wildlife Crimestoppers is a cooperative effort of the Nebraska Wildlife Protector’s Association and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
