Conservation officers are on the hunt for who is responsible for another moose carcass being left to rot, the third since October 9.

On November 4, a conservation officer located an abandoned cow moose off of a forest access road near Legros Road in Alcona, east of Sioux Lookout. The officer determined that the moose had been shot and left to spoil, without any attempt to recover it.

In October, two moose carcasses were found in the Ear Falls area, after the animal had its nose and tongue removed. Last fall, conservation officers also responded to a complaint in the Ignace area. On Oct. 23, 2016, conservation officers responded to a complaint that a calf moose had been shot and left southeast of Ignace. The kill was off Theodore Road, adjacent to Adele Lake. The evidence indicates the moose had been shot with a firearm and left to spoil.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is seeking the public’s help in identifying the individuals responsible. If you have any information about this incident, please contact the MNRF TIPS line at 1-877-847-7667 toll-free any time, or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also call the ministry’s Sioux Lookout district office during regular business hours at 807-737-1140.
