Moose have returned to the Hudson-Arapahoe area after poaching incident two years ago

Thanks to Karl Brauneis who saw this bull moose sauntering across the highway between Hudson and Arapahoe this week and stopped to get a snap. Moose have again been sighted in that area and along Riverview Road outside of Riverton since a major poaching of four of the animals occurred several years ago which, at the time, resulted in a loss of one-third of the moose population between Lander and Riverton on the Popo Agie and Little Wind riparian areas.
