It’s peak season for collisions between cars and deer or elk.  But wildlife officials say for those wanting to salvage any roadkill, that’s not allowed yet.  KLCC’s Brian Bull explains.  

Many Poaching Cases Go Unreported

A recently killed deer in South Eugene is a reminder many poaching crimes go unreported, and police rely on the public's help to catch illegal animal killings.

In the early hours on the morning of November 15th, residents awoke to shots being fired and some observed a vehicle driving away from a fallen black-tailed buck. Oregon State's Fish and Wildlife Trooper Ed Imholt is glad residents called in the crime, but he says many times instances like this go unreported.
