Moose hunting opens in National parks for first time

As of yesterday the moose hunting season opened in two National parks – 20 licences have been issued for Terra Nova and 382 in Gros Morne. Earlier this year, Parks Canada said it was forced to allow hunting in the parks – which is forbidden in many other national parks – because moose are destroying habitats that other species need. There are reportedly 5,000 moose in Gros Morne alone. “In the national parks, we don’t allow the use of ATVs, snowmobiles, or motorboats on inland waters. I guess it’s the old fashioned way of carrying by hand,” said Kevin Robinson from Terra Nova park.
