County Sheriff’s Report

A hunter likely poached a female moose found dead in the Uinta Mountains Sept. 27, investigators say.

"There is also a calf that is very agitated in the area," states a Summit County Sheriff’s Office incident report made at the time.

The dead moose was probably the victim of a "mistaken shot," said Steve Ryberg, district ranger for the Mountain View Ranger District in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest.

"Oftentimes, it is just a mistaken identity," Ryberg said. "Hunters, be aware of what you’re shooting at."
