ABRAMS SAYS THE CHARGES CAME AFTER CONSERVATION OFFICERS EXECUTED A SEARCH WARRANT AFTER GETTING A REPORT OF A MOOSE BEING ILLEGALLY TAKEN IN OSSIPEE.

IN ANOTHER CASE, ABRAMS SAYS 32-YEAR-OLD JOSE ANDUJAR OF TAMWORTH IS CHARGED WITH ILLEGALLY TAKING A MOOSE DURING CLOSED SEASON AND WITHOUT A VALID LICENSE – AND ILLEGAL POSSESSION OF MOOSE.
