GILLETTE, Wyo. — Authorities say two people from Gillette accused of poaching four moose in Fremont County in October have been arrested.
29-year-old Sammy Edlund and his 28-year-old girlfriend, Danielle Najera, face multiple counts of taking an antlered moose without a license in an area with no season, wanton destruction of a big game animal and waste of the edible portion of a game animal.
Investigators say the couple were in a group on private land near Hudson when two cows and two bulls were shot and left to rot.
Two of Najera's relatives — Phillip "Rocky" Hurtado and P.J. Warren — also face charges in connection with the poaching.
