A resident of Rockport saw some hunters shooting deer from the roadway on State Routh 32 near the State Park.  It turns out the hunters were cited by the Division of Wildlife Resources on a couple of counts.  Carolyn Murray has more:  

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says five moose were illegally shot dead earlier this month in northern Utah. 

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that investigators believe it was the work of poachers acting separatly over three days in Summit and Wasatch counties. 

Some were shot at close range by high-powered rifles. Witnesses watched two of the shootings but couldn't identify the hunters. 

The Utah Division of Wildlife is asking the public for help solving the Oct. 5-7 shootings.
