A Washington man has been cited for carrying a weapon and issued a warning regarding transporting wildlife parts after he was suspected of killing a bull elk inside Grand Teton National Park.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says subsequently, 52 year-old Randall Arrotta of Green Acres, Washington was also cited by Wyoming Game and Fish wardens for hunting as a non-resident for big or trophy game animals in a wilderness without a professional guide.  The charges stem from a situation Sunday, September 8th where a witness reported seeing a person hauling animal parts inside the national park just south of the Lizard Creek area near the north end of Jackson Lake.  Skaggs says upon investigation, rangers determine the elk had been taken with a crossbow in the Teton Wilderness of Bridger Teton National Forest just east of the park boundary.  She points out that although archery season is open on nearby national forest lands, it is illegal to carry any weapons across national park land other than a firearm.  It is also illegal to transport animal parts across national park land.
