Information sought in moose poaching

Bull moose was shot and left in Bonner County

From staff reports
Idaho Department of Fish and Game officials are looking for information related to the poaching of a bull moose in Bonner County. The moose was shot and left to waste near the Middle Fork East River Road. The carcass was found on Dec. 3, but officers think the poaching occurred during the last week of November. The illegal take of a moose carries a minimum fine of $500, and under some circumstances the poacher can be charged with a felony. People with information on the poaching should contact Fish and Game at (208) 769-1414, or the Citizens Against Poaching line at (800) 632-5999.
