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.
People continue to hunt illegally...
