Canadian wildlife officials are seeking help finding the person, or persons, responsible for the illegal killing of three moose in Gaspésie National Park, Quebec.

Three moose, including one big bull, were found dead inside Gaspésie National Park in the province of Quebec.

On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, a cow was found at Kilometer marker 101. In October, two others were found shot, killed, and left to rot along Route 299.

One of the animals, a big bull that was recovered, was said to be part of the case, and all three show similarities.

Richard Hamel Assistant Operational Support Director for the park said in a roughly translated text, “The animals are killed and left there… It is always located in the same area, near the house of Mount Albert. Poaching in (Gaspésie National Park), this is not something common.”

The fine for each violation of this type is $1,800.

Anyone with information may contact the office at Sainte-Anne-des-Monts or dial SOS Poaching at 1-800-463-2191.
