Moose cow harassed in Northern Ontario

Moose photo from my Algonquin photography trip
Two men have been fined after harassing a swimming moose in Northern Ontario back in July. The MNR provides regualar enforcement reports about those who have been convicted of such deplorable actions.
Andrew Weiers of Dryden, Ont., and Matthew Weiers of Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., have been fined a total of $2,500 for harassing a cow.
They were in a boat, doing circles around it, according to several news sources, whilst their friends encouraged them. One of the men got out of his boat and got onto the gentle beasts back.
The two men, pleaded guilty to the offence in the Ontario Court of Justice.

 Apparently, Drew Myers  outdoorsman, writer and resident of Eagle Lake, intervened on behalf of the animal, coming between the partyers and the moose.
We all have to stand up for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Thankfully, the MNR has taken punitive action.
If we had access to their Facebook pages, we'd see how they joke about this.

Some people from Alberta are such idiots, Jenn.
Thank goodness for the writer. Makes me think of what my father would have done. He'd have done the very same thing.
