Reward offered for moose poacher

The warden service is investigating the illegal killing of a moose east of Jackman.

They're offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the prosecution of the person responsible.

The warden service was called by someone who found the cow moose and reported that it had been shot and left to waste.

It happened in zone 8 and game officials say no cow permits had been issued for that zone.

Someone shot the animal and covered it with tree boughs to try to hide it.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-alert-us or call the Piscataquis County Sheriff's Department at 564-3304.

The prosecution says Norris knew exactly what she was doing and killed the child after a recent breakup with her boyfriend who was also the child's father. Norris waved her right to a jury trial. The trial is expected to last for much of the week and it will be up to a judge to decide a verdict.

Lepage wins in latest poll

 

With about a week to go until election day the candidates have shifted their campaigns into high gear.

That includes the governor's race where a new poll indicates Governor Lepage would win if the election was today.

The Portland Press Herald/Sunday Telegram poll show Lepage would win with 45 percent of the vote with Congressman Michael Michaud coming in second with 35 percent.

A much bigger gap than in recent polls.

Independent Eliot Cutler comes in third with 16 percent.

The poll also shows that if it was a two man race between Lepage and Michaud, Lepage would win easily.

If it was just between Cutler and Lepage it would be down to the wire.

Both Michaud's and Cutler's campaigns have called on the other side to bow out of the race in order to defeat the Governor whose job approval rating has risen to 48 percent. .
