    New Hampshire Fish and Game officers are conducting a poaching investigation in Errol after they said a moose was found shot to death, with its antlers missing.

    They said it was a mature bull moose, believed to have been shot on or around Friday. No meat was taken from the animal. Conservation officers were able to find some physical evidence at the scene.
