Ex-elk ranch employee charged with stealing elk semen

Posted: Updated:

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A former employee of a Twin Falls elk ranch has been accused of stealing elk semen and artificially inseminating elk at another ranch.
    
The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1Igps8k ) that 30-year-old Brandon Eldredge was arraigned Friday on one count of grand theft.
    
Police say Eldredge stole the semen in 2011 and it was discovered the following year when owners of Early Morning Elk Ranch took inventory.
    
Eldredge was previously accused of stealing and selling antlers from Early Morning Elk Ranch. Those charges were dismissed.
    
According to court documents, the owners of Early Morning Elk Ranch say Eldredge used their elk bull semen to inseminate elk cows at another farm. The other elk ranch paid Eldredge for artificially inseminating their elk cows.
    
The other ranch says they paid Eldredge $3,000 for the semen.

    HELENA, Mont. - The mystery is over: Montana wildlife officials confirm that an unusual-looking animal shot in central Montana was actually a wolf.    Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials initially weren't certain what the creature was when a rancher shot it near Denton in May. They noted the legs, front claws and canine teeth were shorter and its ears bigger than normally seen on wolves.
