Please help Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials find the persons or person who killed this cow moose and her two calves!

According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife these 3 Moose were killed in a subdivision between Granby and Grand Lake on Nov. 14 between 8a & 10a.

According to Mike Porras, last week, up near Hot Sulphur Springs, someone killed a cow moose and her twin calves for no apparent reason. A witness hunting nearby heard several shots, and when he went to investigate, he found the cow and one calf dead, the other calf dying and thankfully called CPW right away!

Mike wants to remind everyone that, "Poaching continues to be a serious concern. Poachers are criminals, and they take opportunity away from legitimate hunters, and they steal from everyone.  No numbers to back this up, but many feel that almost as many animals are killed by poachers, as are by legitimate hunters."

In the case of the three moose killed here are some facts according to CPW:

"Happened between 8 and 10 am last Wed, Nov 14.- in an empty lot in Shadow Mountain Estates, between Granby and Grand Lake.  These moose were a common sight in the subdivision, and were photographed by several people.  We have recovered important evidence, but we need as much info as we can get- even a seemingly insignificant detail can be the missing piece in a larger puzzle."

There is currently a $5,000 reward for information on this case. If you have any information, please call Colorado Parks and Wildlife in Hot Sulphur Springs at 970-725-6200, or Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648 and you can remain anonymous. For more information, visit:
