Reward Doubles for Poacher
The reward for information about the poaching of a cow moose by Avon has been doubled to $2000. Game warden Joe Kambic says that the moose was poached Monday, Feb. 18 near Carpenter and Ophir Creeks. The moose had evidence of multiple gunshot wounds from a small caliber rifle. Public donations bumped the reward amount from the original offering of $1,000 to $2,000 for providing tips that lead to a conviction in the case.
