MiraNews, Save Our Moose

Wolves, ticks and a deadly parasite are killing so many Manitoba moose that hunters, including those from First Nations and Métis communities, are ready to lay down their riflles. This week, Manitoba announced a ban on moose hunting near the Duck and Porcupine Mountains of western Manitoba, expanding a ban imposed in 2010 in the Swan Lake and Pelican Lake regions, west of lake Winnipegosis.
