LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials are asking for the public’s help in identifying who killed a moose out of season in Berlin and left it to rot in what they are calling the most egregious case of poaching that conservation officers have seen in the North County this year.
A cow moose carcass with bullet holes in it was found off Kilkenny Loop Road on Friday night.
Officials say tracks in the snow show that someone had walked up to the moose, fired a final shot into the animal’s head and then walked away. No meat was removed.
Conservation officers believe the moose was shot on Wednesday or Thursday.
Authorities believe that multiple people may have been involved.
