BARAGA, Mich. (AP) - Investigators are seeking the public’s help in solving the illegal killing of a bull moose in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The Department of Natural Resources says the carcass was discovered last weekend. Based on evidence collected at the site, conservation officers believe the animal was killed in late November in the Three Lakes area of Baraga County.

Officers say logging is taking place in the area and road hunting violations have been reported there.

A cash reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of the poacher. Michigan does not have a moose hunting season and moose are protected under state law.

Penalties for killing moose include up to 90 days in jail, a fine of up to $1,000, restitution of $1,500 and loss of hunting privileges for four years.
