BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota Game and Fish Department officials are looking for help in catching a moose poacher in the northeastern part of the state.

Five adult moose, including two bulls and three cows, were shot and killed sometime around April 25 through April 30 southwest of Dunseith.

One of the cows was pregnant with triplets and had two calves cut out of her. The department is asking anyone with information to contact officials.
