Retired Conservation Officer Wants More Moose Protection

Manitobans need to do more work to protect the provincial moose populations according to a retired conservation officer.
 
Dr. Vince Crichton is a former manager of game, fur and problem wildlife with the wildlife and ecosystem protection branch of Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship.
 
He says it's important for Manitobans to report incidents of Moose poaching to conservation officers.
 
"These resources belong to the people of Manitoba, not the government. The government just manages them. These are resources that belong to the people of Manitoba, and so we've all got to start getting in the same canoe and start going in the same direction."
 
Crichton says the moose is an important part of Manitoba's biodiversity.
 
"They have contributed economically to people such as first nations people, metis people and to licensed hunters. I'm a hunter and I also like to get up and go to Riding Mountain to photograph moose. I've studied moose for well over 40 years, and there's people that get up there and like to seem them, take pictures of them, view them and watch them."
 
The province estimates that there is currently 32,000 moose in the province.
