Iditarod Champ Calls Poaching Charges “Bogus”

Last week, four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King was charged with illegally killing a moose inside Denali National Park and Preserve. Now, he’s telling his side of the story.

From the Juneau Empire:

_According to King, the moose fell about 600 feet inside the park boundary. The moose may have covered all or part of that distance after the first time he shot it, King said.

"I shot it once, it ran, I shot it again," he said. "I did not believe I was in the park. . . .

“The fact that [park rangers] think I was hiding something ... the whole thing is humiliating," said King._
