Was someone looking to expand their trophy room? The Sheriff's Office reports that someone broke into the Wildlife Museum in Willow Creek overnight and stole $750,000 worth of dead animal parts.

Among the stolen items: two three-foot ivory elephant tusks, a mounted elk head, a bear skin rug and a kangaroo rug. Apparently someone pried open back doors to the museum, setting off an audible alarm. Sheriff's deputies arrived at 5 a.m. There are no suspects at the moment.

The Sheriff's Office is asking for help:

Anyone with information for the Sheriff's Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriffs Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriffs Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.
