The OSP Fish & Wildlife Division is asking for the public’s help to identify the person(s) responsible for the unlawful killing of a cow moose in Wallowa County.
On December 2, 2016, OSP was notified of one dead cow moose approximately 20 yards off of Coal Docks Road, which is located northwest of Wallowa in Wallowa County. OSP Fish and Wildlife Troopers responded and found a cow moose had been shot and some of the meat left to waste. The subsequent Investigation revealed the moose was most likely shot in the late evening hours of December 1, 2016 or early morning hours of December 2, 2016. Evidence was collected at the scene.
There are no lawful hunts that allow the harvesting of moose in Oregon.
A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case. The reward is offered by the Oregon Hunters Association Turn-In-Poacher (TIP) program.
Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact OSP Senior Trooper Brian Miller through the TIP hotline at 1-800-452-7888 or email at [email protected]
