Moose Poached Near Grand Teton


    Earlier this week I posted an item about the problems parks face from poaching. Sadly, word came to me this morning that a bull moose was poached recently in the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway that runs between Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.
    Grand Teton officials, who have posted a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the responsible idiots, say the moose was killed around September 20th. Information can be forwarded to Grand Teton officials at 307-739-3330.


Is there hunting allowed there, for elk or other fair game? Texas is home to a vast amount of hunters. Now, I know that a part of those hunting licenses' fees go to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Commission, but it still bothers me. Why would ANYONE want to kill a moose?
