Someone shot this bull with a .22 LR.
Unfortunately, with hunting seasons comes an increase in poaching. A private citizen and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources are offering a reward for information on a moose illegally shot in Rich County.
A tip from a citizen led a conservation officer to a bull moose poached on private property in Round Valley’s Cottonwood Canyon back on September 21. The bull was less than 100 yards off the road. The cause of death for the bull was several shots from a firearm chambered in .22 LR.
The DWR’s press release states that a private citizen contributed an additional $1,000 for information in this case. Tips can be made anonymously by calling 1-800-662-3337 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conservation officer investigating the case, Dakota Pray, can also be reached at 385-245-0470 or email@example.com.
