Cow moose poached near Union Pass Road

The Wyoming

separate poaching incidents.

The first was a cow moose that was illegally

shot and left to waste along the

Union Pass Road at the north end of Buffalo

Meadows on the Bridger-Teton National

Forest. The moose was shot less

Pass Road between Pinedale and Dubois.

A second poaching incident involved

a bull elk shot and partially field-dressed
