Idaho Fish and Game Seek Information on Poached Moose in South Hills
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-Magic Valley wildlife managers want information on a moose left to waste in the South Hills earlier this fall.
According to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, a hunter found an adult bull moose rotting on Deadline Ridge and reported it to officials in October. Conservation officers located the animal and determined it had been shot and left to waste. Investigators think the moose may have been killed in August or early September. Idaho Fish and Game said none of the hunters with moose tags in the area had shot and lost a moose during their hunts.
