On Feb. 23 at about 5:30 p.m., after all other options were exhausted, Alaska Wildlife Troopers, Soldotna Post, had to dispatch a cow moose that was caught in a coyote snare on Upper Cohoe Lake in Kasilof. The cow was pregnant and had aborted its calf due to being in distress while in the snare. The cow was donated to charity. The snares did not have breakaways installed, which is not a violation. Troopers contacted the trappers involved, who removed the rest of their snares to install breakaways. Trappers are reminded that breakaways can save moose from being killed or injured unnecessarily.
