Still no one charged with killing of white moose

A hefty reward is in place for any information about the killing of a white cow moose in Foleyet late last month.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry says the cow was killed and harvested on Nova Road sometime during the week of October 26th.

They continue to investigate, but no arrests have been made.

Flying Post First Nation Troy Woodhouse offered a $1,000 reward, but Missinaibi Drilling and the Gordon and Patricia Gray Animal Welfare Foundation have also contributed bringing the total to $8,000.

Anyone with information can call the Ministry, police or Crime Stoppers.


It is illegal to hunt and harvest predominantly white-coloured moose in wildlife management units 30 and 31.

White-coloured moose are not a separate species, and their colour may be caused by a recessive gene that occurs within the broader moose population.

If you have any information about the incident, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit

If your information leads to an arrest, you could earn up to $2,000 in cash. You will remain anonymous and not have to testify in court.
