State Wildlife Resources Division law enforcement officers have arrested four Cedar City-area men on charges of poaching an elk, Iron County prosecutors said Thursday.

The suspects were identified as 21-year-old twin brothers Roger H. Smith and Russell H. Smith, Tex F. Carter, 23 and Brendon R. Petty, 22. The men were to be arraigned Oct. 26 in 5th Circuit Court.Division rangers claim the men did not have an elk hunting license and the animal was killed out of season last month in southwestern Utah.
