PRINCETON, Idaho — A cow and calf moose were illegally killed on Moscow Mountain near Princeton earlier this month.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game said the moose were found on December 20 and were likely killed earlier that same day. No moose hunting seasons were open at the time and no hunting seasons exist for cow moose throughout the Clearwater Region due to concerns with population levels.

According to experts, evidence suggests multiple people were involved in killing the animals.
