We need your help to solve the illegal killing of a wild moose in Minnesota. During the 2014 rifle deer season, wildlife officers discovered a moose that had been shot and left to waste. The moose was killed a few miles south of Fosston, Minnesota.

With the Minnesota moose population on the decline, the thoughtless act of killing one and leaving it to waste only adds to the loss of these magnificent animals. If you have any information that can help wildlife officers solve this crime, please call 218-844-3423.
