RCMP calls shooting moose from your truck “lazy”

The RCMP in Newfoundland are calling moose hunters who hunt from the comfort of their vehicles lazy. The CBC is reporting that rhe police force is receiving complaints about hunters who aren’t bothering to get out of their vehicles or leave roads before taking a shot at a moose. “Too lazy to get out of the car and go into the woods and hunt like you’re supposed to. Stopping on the highway, erratic driving, driving without due care and a attention, standing in the rear of half-tonne trucks,” commented Sgt. Boyd Merrill. “It’s just extreme laziness,” he said. Oh, did anyone forget that it’s also illegal?
