Praise Capture of Men Who Allegedly Stabbed Moose to Death


Target: Chief of the Anchorage Police Department Mark Mew

Goal: Praise Anchorage Police Department for arresting alleged killers who punched and stabbed moose to death.

Three men possibly responsible for the death of a young moose were apprehended thanks to witnesses that helped police from the Anchorage Police Department. Moose are a common sight in Alaska and typically coexist peacefully with humans and their pets. However, on a brisk Alaskan evening, three witnesses called the police about an attack on a moose on a bike path. Police responded accordingly and were able to find the murder weapons along with three suspects. The authorities involved in this arrest should be thanked and praised for their work.

The event occurred in Russian Jack Springs Park, where three witnesses saw three males punching and stabbing a moose before walking away. The witnesses placed a call to police. Officers hoped to find the young moose alive, but sadly it died from its injuries. The murder weapon was not found at the scene of the crime, but authorities did say that there was a lot of blood. A long gash could be seen on the moose’s left hand side along with several puncture wounds near its neck. The suspects were found at a park chalet; one man had blood on his jacket. The knives were not found on their person, but dogs were able to locate large hunting knives in a concrete pipe near the site of the murder.

The suspects are Johnathan Candelario, 25, James Galloway, 28, and Nick Johnston, 33. Charges were given at an Anchorage courtroom, and the bail has been set. It was thanks to the cooperation of the witnesses and the Anchorage Police Department that these men were caught. Please sign this petition and tell Chief Mark Mew that his department did a good job in apprehending the possible killers.


Dear Chief Mark Mew,

I recently heard of the murder of a yearling moose by three men in the Russian Jack Springs park. It disturbs me that human beings were so eager to hurt an innocent animal, especially one who is so young. I am glad that good Samaritans and those in the police force were able to apprehend the suspects and press charges. Moose are normally peaceful creatures, and Alaska itself is a role model in teaching societies how to coexist with animals.

Again, I am relieved that your department was able to arrested these men. I am sure that the Anchorage community is also relieved that these men have been charges. It is obvious that the killers are mentally ill, and I hope that help will also be given to them. Please continue to protect the local wildlife from abusers.
