A pregnant cow moose was poached off McCulloch Road late Wednesday and conservation officers are looking for any information that might help them track down the culprits.

Conservation officer Ed Seitz said the remains were discovered by someone driving by about 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

The poacher didn’t remove all the meat which Seitz says leads him to suspect he was in a hurry to get away from the site.

The moose and its unborn fetus were found about 50 metres off the road just past km 13 on the road, between the turnoffs to Myra Forest Service Road and the road in to Browne Lake.

Tracks in the snow at the side of the road indicate at least one adult and possibly two were involved in the kill, said Seitz.

If you have any information that might be helpful in tracking down the poacher, contact the CO service, toll-free, any hour of the day, at 1-877-952-7277.
