Fish and Game seeks help solving moose poaching
Idaho Fish and Game is asking for help in determining who shot and wasted a cow moose discovered Oct. 19 along the Zaza Road on the Craig Mountain Wildlife Management Area south of Lewiston.
The entire carcass was left to waste and was found under the electrical power line near the Zaza Road west of Kruze Meadows. Officers believe the moose was shot sometime late last week or over the past weekend.
There is currently no moose hunt in progress in the area.
"Hunters should be outraged," said Rick Cooper, Fish and Game conservation officer based in Lewiston. "The moose population is already low in this area, and we really need help in solving this crime."
Anyone observing suspicious activity in this area or with information about this crime is encouraged to contact the Fish and Game office in Lewiston at (208) 799-5010 or the Citizens Against Poaching hotline at (800) 632-5999. Callers can remain anonymous and will be eligible for a $500 reward.
