Moose are common all across Canada

SIOUX LOOKOUT – The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is seeking the public’s help in identifying the individual or individuals responsible for shooting and abandoning a bull moose.

The officers believe that the moose was shot and abandoned sometime in late November or early December.
