DIVISION INVESTIGATES POACHING OF MOOSE NEAR VAIL

The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) is seeking information from the public about a bull moose poached within the past two weeks along a U.S. Forest Service Road north of Vail.

The carcass of the moose was discovered Sunday, Sept. 28, along Forest Service Road 410, known as the Meadow Creek Road, and reported to the DOW. The route leads to Piney Lake in the White River National Forest.

The investigating DOW officers determined that the moose was shot and killed a week or more before the carcass was discovered. There is no hunting season for moose in the area where the animal was killed.

The rack of the adult bull was recovered by the DOW and measured 41 inches wide.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact the DOW’s Glenwood office at (970) 947-2920 or call the Operation Game Thief Hotline at (800) 332-4155.

A reward can be paid for information leading to an arrest in the case or if a citation is issued.
