Two young people were charged with poaching in the shooting of a pregnant moose in February.

The Montana Department of Fish Wildlife and Parks announced the charges against the two unidentified juveniles this week. The two were charged with shooting a moose northeast of Avon, MT. The moose carcass was found near Carpenter and Ophir Creeks February 19 by warden Jom Kambic. It had been shot a number of times by a small caliber weapon.

Kambic, the lead investigator in the case, said the incident generated a lot of interest and prompted local donations that increased a reward to $2,000.

However, FWP Chief of Enforcement Jim Kropp said the case was solved without help from the TIP-MONT hotline. He said that the 1-800 hotline often helps solve this type of crime, but not this time.

No further details of the incident were released at this time.
