    The pronghorn was eventually killed and was left at the scene. There was no pronghorn season at the time of the shooting, said Jolley.

    Witnesses reported the man was wearing blue jeans and a white jersey-style shirt with a number on the back at the time of the incident. The man left the scene in a newer, white, four-door truck, with either a gray or silver stripe. Witnesses said the vehicle may have been a Ford. The vehicle was last seen driving toward Stillwater Canyon near Saratoga Springs in northern Utah.

    Anyone with information regarding the illegal killing of this pronghorn, or any other wildlife, is encouraged to contact the UTiP hotline at 800-662-3337. They can also report any illegal wildlife activity on the DWR website. If they have information about this specific case, they can also contact DWR Conservation Officer James Thomas at 801-503-4070. Rewards are available and requests for confidentiality are respected.
