ERROL (AP) — New Hampshire Fish and Game officers are conducting a poaching investigation in Errol after they said a moose was found shot to death, with its antlers missing.

Officers responded to a tip on Sunday regarding the dead animal, found about three-fourths of a mile from the end of Smokey Camp Brook Road.

They said it was a mature bull moose, believed to have been shot on or around Friday. No meat was taken from the animal. Conservation officers were able to find some physical evidence at the scene.

Those with any information regarding this incident are being asked to report either directly or anonymously to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Regional Office in Lancaster at 788-3164 or the Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-800-344-4262.
