Veronica Verburgt, 37, is accused of shooting a cow moose when her permit was only for taking an antlered moose, according to Sgt. Ralph Hosford of Maine Warden Service. The shooting came to the attention of law enforcement when the Hancock County alcohol enforcement team, made up of area police officers, received a report of an underage drinking party in Osborn. Responding officers did not find the gathering, but they did hear shots fired in the woods, Hosford said Monday. Police investigated and found a hunting party with a dead male moose, Hosford said.
