Local News

Officials with the Division of Wildlife Resources in Davis and Rich Counties are investigating reports of poaching.


A reward is being offered to find the person or people responsible for poaching a small bull moose. Officials say they received the report on Sept. 21. The moose was less than 100 yards off the road on private property up up Cottonwood Canyon in Round Valley. An anonymous person, not affiliated with DWR, is offering a $1,000 reward but DWR says they may also offer a reward to anyone who provides information leading the the arrest and prosecution of those responsible.


In Layton officials are working to find those responsible for poaching a doe. They say on Sept.2nd an employee at Valley View Golf Course reported a bloody arrow. A week later they found the deer carcass.

Investigators say evidence found at the scene suggests someone trespassed onto the golf course. In this case DWR says a reward may also be offered for information leading to the conviction of the suspect(s).
