As hunting season progresses, so does the count of moose
illegally killed on the Kenai Peninsula -- either from hunters not
making themselves aware of new regulations or not taking the time to
be sure a moose they’re targeting is legal.
“The total is at
10 right now,” said Lt. Jon Streifel with the Alaska Wildlife
Troopers in Soldotna. That’s 10 bulls illegally killed in Game
Management Units 7 and 15.
Troopers are investigating one
wanton-waste kill so far this season. At Mile 108 of the
Sterling Highway, an illegal moose was found shot and left at the
side of the road.
