Two Men Accused of Shooting Moose from the TCH in the Middle of the Night

Two men from Wareham, Bonavista Bay are facing charges after allegedly shooting a moose on the Trans Canada in the middle of the night. Wildlife officers received numerous complaints last Friday night, September 11th, the night before the official start of the hunting season of possible night hunting along the TCH.

 

RCMP also fielded complaints that same night about vehicles impeding traffic.

 

Just after midnight on Saturday, September 12th, officers apprehended two men who had allegedly shot a moose on the side of the highway just east of Gander. The men are facing charges of hunting during a closed time, using an artificial light to hunt big game, and shooting from the highway.

 

The moose, two rifles and ammunition, two big game licences and tags, and a knife were seized. The men are scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
