Moose cull

Parks Canada plans to kill about 4,000 moose in Newfoundland.

The island’s moose are believed to be descended from only four animals that were introduced to the western side of island in 1904 to supplement the dwindling caribou herd.

Today, the density of the population in some areas is the highest in the world.

Lucy Stoyles, a city councillor in Mount Pearl, says she would like to see the cull extended, mainly because collisions with moose represent a hazard on Newfoundland’s highways.

“I think that it’s great they’re doing that cull,” she said. “But they have to look at more than just the parks.”
