Cow and calf moose shot and left to waste

photo
An adult cow and a bull calf moose were shot by high-powered rifles at close range on the Wasatch Currant Creek Unit.

The smells of fall and the crisp autumn air were tainted by the odor of two moose left to rot on the Wasatch Currant Creek Unit. Officers with the Utah Division of Wildlife are looking for your help in solving this case.

An adult cow and a bull calf moose were shot by high-powered rifles at close range. This incident occurred sometime between October 5 and 6, 2013. The moose were found and reported by hunters two miles west of Currant Creek Reservoir near the Racetrack area.

Conservation officers were guided to the poached moose by the elk hunters who found it and reported it to the UTiP Hotline.

Anyone with information related to the illegal killing of these animals, or any other wildlife crime, is encouraged to contact the UTiP Hotline at 1-800-662-3337. Rewards are available and requests for confidentiality are respected.
