Someone or several people are poaching moose and leaving them for dead in northern Utah.
From Oct. 5 through Oct. 7, five moose were shot and killed in Wasatch and Summit counties. The Utah Division of Wildlife wants the public's help catching the hunter or hunters responsible.
"The smells of fall and the crisp autumn air were tainted by the odor of two moose left to rot on the Wasatch Currant Creek Unit," the division wrote in a news release about the first shootings. An adult cow and a bull calf moose were shot by high-powered rifles at close range sometime between Oct. 5 and 6 about two miles west of Currant Creek Reservoir, near the Racetrack area, according to the release.
