Crime Stoppers Crime of the WeekMonday, October 22, 2012 by: SooToday.com Staff
October 22, 2012 - October 28, 2012
Crime Stoppers and the Ministry of Natural Resources are seeking the public’s assistance concerning the recent wastage of a cow moose in the Sault Ste. Marie area.
Between October 7 and October 8, 2012, the front quarters and other remains of a cow moose were dumped on Government Lake Road off of Highway 17 north in Tupper Township.
Wasting meat suitable for food impacts on the general moose population as well as on the number of tags issued in that Wildlife Management Unit (WMU).
During these difficult economic times it is hard to comprehend why someone would needlessly take an animal's life and then not utilize it fully.
If you have any information about this senseless act or any other crime you can call Crime Stoppers at 705-942-7867 or 1-800-222-8477, type a tip through our website or text a tip by sending the keyword SSM to 274637.
If your tip leads to an arrest, you could receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.

There is some thing that we are not told? Maybe it went bad for some reason or it was a poached moose and these guys could not get it cut? But if it was an illegal moose then these guys would not be that stupid to dump it there would they? What a shame and waste all at a time that the moose population is on a decline with an unfair lottery tag system that may and does cause poaching, not to mention the increase of bears and wolves coupled with the unfair Native and Metis so called hunting rights.

They would need to get the US border to cooperate on that, and have all american hunters that cross during the season to be searched on the way back.

It is not a so called right it is a right for status Indians to hunt and fish as for Metis that is more complicated it varies by province and Ontario has an interim agreement for now that says Metis can harvest on a specific area of land around their specific community, not wherever they feel like it.., and we need wolves to increase in numbers bc in some areas they are listed as being st critically low numbers.... Coyotes different story
