STRATFORD, NH — On approximately October 20, 2018 an adult cow moose was shot, killed, and left to rot at Sugarloaf Pond in Stratford, NH. The individual first shot the moose in the chest and after it was wounded, approached it and delivered the final shot to the head at close range. The individual did not make any attempt to salvage anything from the moose, instead left the moose to rot, wasting hundreds of pounds of meat.
