I love stormy weather at this time of year. It means that during the Cape Breton Highlands National Park moose cull, the helicopter can’t fly in certain weather conditions, and so can’t be used to spot moose, transport hunters and sling dead moose carcasses out...

Gonna sound like a broken record but, everything about this cull is unethical. The writer's number of $775,000 is not accurate either. It is north of $1,000,000 of tax payer dollars. Something that could have been done via draw hunt and generate revenue is instead, costing us 11 to 12 grand per moose. How's that for expensive meat for ya lol?

A liberal is a lot like a slinkey........They both put a smile on your face when you push them down the stairs!

Given the extensive helicopter use, it makes one wonder if some moose were “nudged” from outside the park boundary to inside the study area where they could be killed.


Ms. Courage,

There is no need to "...nudge the moose back into the Park".

They are using Mi'kmaq to kill the moose...and the Mi'kmaq are not subject to the provincial game laws which are intent on instituting the ethic of 'fair chase'.

The Mi'kmaq can kill the moose whenever and where ever they see them...inside the Park (with Parks Canada's approval), or outside the Park.


The 'Russell Decision' is the public justification...The 'no-boundaries' practicality is the reason .  ;)

Your True 'Ethics'...are what you do when you think no one sees you.
