WOLFEBORO, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says a man has been charged with illegally killing a moose on his property and using his excavator to bury the remains.

Conservation officers approached Barry Caswell in Wolfeboro over the weekend and found a 40-gallon tub filled with fresh moose meat on the property. They also said the carcass of a young cow moose was unearthed, having been buried 3 feet and covered by a six-foot brush pile.

Caswell was charged with a misdemeanor, taking of a moose of out of season. He’s also been assessed a $1,000 fine. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

More than 10,000 hunters entered this year’s lottery to secure one of the 124 moose hunt permits issued for the nine-day season ending Sunday.
