SPRINGDALE, Utah (AP) -- A St. George man is sentenced for his connection in an elk poaching incident at Zion National Park.

25-year-old Joshua K. Glazier has been ordered to serve two days in jail and pay four-thousand dollars in restitution to Utah's Help Stop Poaching program.

Glazier was found with the ivories -- or upper front teeth -- of a bull elk killed in the park in October 2003.

The animal was found with no head near Blue Springs Reservoir. It's believed the antlers were removed from the head and possibly hidden near Oak Valley.

Glazier was also put on one-year probation, during that time he will be banned from entering Zion National Park.

Officials don't believe that Glazier was responsible for the bull elk's death. Park officials are offering a five-thousand dollar reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who did kill the elk.
