Spence and Moriarity Wildlife Management Area

Poisoned meat that killed three dogs and an array of wildlife was left out east of Dubois in the Spence and Moriarity Wildlife Management Area, pictured here, in January 2018. A $10,000 reward has been offered for information leading to a conviction.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service law enforcement officers received word two years ago that several dogs had eaten poison and died just east of Dubois.

The domestic animals, out on walks near the East Fork of the Wind River and Horse Creek drainages, came down suddenly with diarrhea and were vomiting and convulsing. They were rushed to the East Fork Veterinary Services in Dubois, but didn’t make it.

The perpetrator(s) target humans. Society is based on our following rules and laws designed to benefit us all. Low information people with a sense of entitlement and self-importance steal from each of us. Worse, they lower ethical standards as those who know of their actions remain silent, as if there is some moral high-ground covering for criminal activity.
