Marv Hoyt, the Idaho director of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition (GYC), an agency that tasked itself with protecting water, land and wildlife (including elk) in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, is leaving his position after admitting to killing three elk and leaving two to waste this past hunting season.
According to the Idaho Statesman, Idaho Fish and Game officer Blake Phillips found one dead elk while hunting November 9th in Idaho’s Nate Canyon area. He called in two other officers to help with an investigation which uncovered three dead elk within 100 yards of one another, but only one with the meat removed. They noted the other two, including one camouflaged with branches cut from a nearby tree, were shot in the hind quarter, then dispatched in the head at close range, and left to waste.
