Wildlife officials say a poacher dumped the partial carcasses of three pronghorn antelope into a construction Dumpster near Torreys Peak Way in Falcon earlier this week.

In a Saturday news release, Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife officials said the discovery was made Oct. 9.

"Portions of the animals were missing, but large amounts of meat were wasted," officials said.

Wildlife agents are hoping tipsters can lead them to the poacher

"Anyone who saw any suspicious activity or has information should call Parks and Wildlife Officer Steve Cooley at 719-227-5284 or call a toll-free poaching tip line 1-877-265-6648," officials said. "Verizon cell phone users can dial #OGT, or tips can be e-mailed to game.thief@state.co.us."
Police said information can result in cash rewards or other perks, including free hunting licenses.
