The latest poaching case is in addition to two other wildlife cases being investigated by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks.

Charges are still expected to be filed against two men who were arrested following a manhunt after a witness called authorities to report they had shot a trophy white-tailed buck from their vehicle in northwest Ellis County.

"We're still visiting with the county attorney," said Capt. Mel Madorin, the regional supervisor for KDWP law enforcement.

KDWP personnel are also hoping to get information concerning a trophy-size bull elk that was seen wandering through Ellis County.

"We still suspect it was taken illegally, but with the condition of the animal, it was hard to tell," Madorin said.
