Yellowstone makes bragging hazardous ...

  Poachers may want to avoid Yellowstone National Park this fall. Rangers have begun photographing the park's most spectacular wildlife so that pictures are available if the animals are killed and their heads mounted as trophies. "This way, if we find that poachers have gotten one of these animals, we know exactly what to look for and what to tell other agencies to look for," Pat Ozment, a Yellowstone law enforcement specialist, told the Billings Gazette. Since elk are the most-poached animal in the park, rangers are photographing all bull elk with antlers of at least five points. Last fall, thieves killed two bull elk only a few hundred yards from a main road. This year, on Aug. 27, a 1,500-pound bull bison was found killed and decapitated.
