IDFG investigates shooting of cow and calf moose near Moscow Mountain

Idaho Fish and Game officials are investigating the recent illegal shooting of two moose near Moscow Mountain.

The remains from a cow and calf moose were found on Moscow Mountain near Hatter Creek Sunday December 20. It is believed both moose were killed earlier the same day. No moose hunting seasons were open at the time the animals were killed and no hunting seasons exist for cow moose throughout the Clearwater region due to concerns regarding moose population levels.

Evidence suggests multiple people may have been involved with killing the moose.

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call IDFG Senior Conservation Officer Tony Imthurn at (208) 716-8099 or call the Citizens Against Poaching hotline 1-800-632-5999. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward. (IDFG)
