No Charges To Be Levied Against Man Who Shot Moose In Denali Park

The National Park Service says there will be no charges against the man who shot a cow moose last week near the Denali National Park visitor center.

Discharging firearms in the park is illegal, but the Park Service has concluded that Robert Servid of Eagle River was just trying to protect his family. They also say they will try to capture the moose’s two calves and offer them to zoos and wildlife parks.

Servid went immediately to authorities after the incident and described how the startled moose had been charging his children.
