A Vermont prosecutor won't pursue charges against the wife of a state game warden following an investigation into whether she illegally shot a moose.

Kim Eckhardt of Landgrove, wife of Fish and Wildlife Department Greg Eckhardt, was hunting with her husband Oct. 21 when she fatally shot a second moose on a hunting permit that allowed taking only one.

Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter says he believes Mrs. Eckhardt thought she was firing at the same moose her husband had shot less than a minute earlier, in hopes of keeping the moose from running off wounded.
