The Summit County's Attorney's has declined to prosecute a Summit Park resident who shot and killed a moose after it attacked his dog about two weeks ago.

Chief Prosecutor Matthew Bates, wrote in a letter that the shooter, who legally had a 40 caliber semi-automatic hand gun under a conceal-carry permit, acted in self defense when he fired twice at the moose.

Bates, however,  said he was referring the case to Animal Control, to site the shooter for walking his dog off leash. Rick Brough has more.
