Ministry seeks public’s help in case of shot and abandoned moose
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is seeking the public’s help in identifying the individual or individuals responsible for shooting and abandoning a bull moose.
On October 9, 2018, conservation officers were made aware of a dead bull moose that had been located by a member of the public. Officers attended the location along Race Lake Road, north of Sioux Lookout, and determined that the moose had been shot and abandoned.
This is the second moose that has been abandoned in this immediate area in the past two years. A cow moose was shot and abandoned 150 metres north of this location in the fall of 2016.
