Wardens Seek Info on Pronghorn, Moose Killings

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Law enforcement authorities are looking for information in the illegal killing of two pronghorn and one moose during the opening week of the deer gun season.

North Dakota Game and Fish Department district game warden Jeff Violett said at least two pronghorn were shot and left along County Road 83 northwest of Mandan in Morton County. Based on the scene, it is possible more pronghorn were killed. The incident took place Sunday morning, Nov. 11.

District game warden Jackie Lundstrom said a bull moose was shot near Moffit in Burleigh County, sometime between Nov. 11-18. The young bull was seen traveling with an adult cow moose.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Game and Fish Department’s enforcement office in Bismarck at (701) 328-6604, or the Report All Poachers telephone number at (800) 472-2121.

The RAP line has offered a $1,000 reward in each case for information that leads to a conviction. Callers can remain anonymous.
