Reward Increased In Moose Poaching Case

The reward has grown to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of a suspect of suspects in the illegal killing of a moose near the Nevada-Idaho line.

Nevada game wardens announced earlier this month that Operation Game Thief was offering a $1,000 reward after a citizen discovered the beheaded moose carcass Dec. 25 about 20 miles southeast of Jarbidge.

Donations from several wildlife advocacy groups have upped the ante for the reward. It’s the third moose-poaching case in Nevada in the last three years.
