To the Editor:
is this state coming to? The selling of bear skulls and hides
to boost moose populations? Why don't we stop selling out-of-state
licenses to hunters who shoot for trophies and take their
kill out of the state? This alone would boost more moose for
to this newspaper, moose travel in herds. If this is what
is known about moose, then perhaps there ought to be a good
lesson in moose biology and while we are there, a look at
we should kill everything that could possibly pose a threat
to moose. Killing the bears, one of the biggest tourists attractions
for people to this state, is not going to solve the problem
for dwindling moose numbers if in fact the moose numbers are
dwindling. Perhaps there is over-hunting in the affected areas.
Please look at this issue more scientifically before going
in and killing off another creature for human gain.
