HOT SPRINGS -- Five people are now facing fines for shooting a bull elk out of season near Hot Springs.

After investigations beginning in early October, tribal and FWP officials later discovered that the elk had been shot by a non-tribal member on non-tribal lands.

All of the suspects claimed the elk was wounded before it was shot. However, authorities noted no one had called in to report the wounded animal before it was killed. 

All suspects were charged in Lake County Justice Court and have since been fined.
