I'm sorry moderators, but I can't resist.... Twisted Evil ....Fortunately, we have the General Discussion Forum for this kind of thing. The fate of the animal is not so funny, I must admit. Crying or Very sad

Hey they ought to consider themselves lucky. "Rambo" would have thrown a rock and hit the tail rotor and the whole thing would have blown up. Laughing

I don't know their goal here, but I know many projects to tranquilize wildlife have very noble purposes to gather data such as average weight in an area (are they getting enough food?) stomach content (what are they eating, has it changed?), disease prevalence, and other information for population management that can't be got any other way.

I once got to see a wolf pack ID'd by a small plane, and a helicopter come and shoot a wolf, then collect the tranquilized wolf for study in Yellowstone National Park. Unfortunately, the animals were barely more than dots, even in ten power binoculars, or I'd have some very cool photos to show for it! A ranger I later asked about it explained that all sorts of data on the wolf population would be gathered from the animal, then it would be released with a radio tracking collar to study it's movements. Very important in managing wildlife populations, which we now have to do since we've driven the animals into such small areas compared to the state of nature.

Heck, what a way for a wonderful animal such as a Moose to come to its end. Phew.

All the best Mike and thanks.

Danny.
