The Arizona Game and Fish Department is investigating another poaching of a bull elk.

Officials say the poaching occurred last Sunday morning.

The elk was shot and left to waste along a U.S. Forest Service road northwest of Williams.

Game and Fish officials say there was not a lawful bull elk season going on at the time and the elk was shot with a large caliber rifle behind the shoulder.

Investigating officers are seeking information to locate two persons who might have left the scene in a pickup truck.

There have been at least three other cases of elk poaching in Arizona since last month.
