End To Moose Calf Hunting Proposed

An environmental group says there is support among hunters to end the hunt of moose calves in Ontario.

The CPAWS Wildlands League sees the move as helping a declining moose population.

The agency's Forest Manager Dave Pearce says many hunters favoured the idea when they offered up it up among other options in a recent survey.

The agency would also like to see Moose Refuge areas created, plots of land not accessible by road, so moose can thrive.
