How dare anyone kill a moose. Oh, they don't look like a dog. Carry on.

@gunflintmama. You are right lets all just eat plants that have no chance of getting away. But that is ok right as plants do not have a face.

@scott44: You have convinced me. It's much, much better to kill one's food. Killing is not only manly, but fun!

"Willy53: Why in the world are we still hunting Moose in Minnesota?" ---- Some pseudo-hunters must need targets the size of barn broadsides and that stay motionless because they are rather unafraid animals (unfortunately).
