EASTBROOK, Maine A Franklin woman has been summoned on a charge of illegally shooting a moose on Saturday evening, according to officials.
Veronica Verburgt, 37, is accused of shooting a cow moose when her permit was only for taking an antlered moose, according to Sgt. Ralph Hosford of Maine Warden Service.
The shooting came to the attention of law enforcement when the Hancock County alcohol enforcement team, made up of area police officers, received a report of an underage drinking party in Osborn. Responding officers did not find the gathering, but they did hear shots fired in the woods, Hosford said Monday.
