Police shoot 2nd moose few weeks apart

This is horrible. Police shoot a young moose, the second, a few week apart. Appartanly they called different organizations for help, which I don't believe. Now the City of Ottawa is hiring a Wildlife Specialist to deal with wildlife issues from now on.

Here is the link about the shooting

And they're going to bury the poor thing making the whole episode a complete waste. When my OH was a C.O. the meat from large animal fresh roadkill went to a local zoo and the hides went to a co-op that used the leather. I've heard the zoos are much more particular about their food sources these days though.

I think they are burying it because some members of the public would freak, if they were to actually use the meat, etc. However, as sad as this poor animal had to die..they might as well use the meat for instance, like you said..for zoos. I don't see why they wouldn't. It is after all moose meat. Very healthy. Geesh I know the African Lion Safari uses horse meat to feed their animals. So I don't understand why moose meat would be a problem. Much healthy for the animals, then horse meat. But on a side note and a little off topic here...but African Lion Safari doesn't operate well, and should really be shut down.

If they could even take the carcass out to the bush somewhere and leave it for wild scavengers to clean up that would at least be a use and sort of in keeping with nature. But I suppose there would be a hue and cry about that too. Not to mention the red tape involved in taking it from the NCC to either Ontario or Quebec.

very true. Kinda like a catch 22 with some members of the public. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. But in all honestly this moose should never have been shot.

Police shoot

If the MNR and Humane Society had stepped up to the plate these shootings would not have occurred. What is their function and what are they paid for?
