Tests don’t justify killing moose

The Department of Environmental Conservation shot a bull moose that was acting strangely near Lake Placid last fall to analyze it. Nothing was found wrong [“DEC defends moose killing,” May/June 2013]. DEC should have tranquilized it, then taken it to a wildlife-rescue facility to study it.

What would you think if you took your dog or cat to the vet and he said, “Let’s shoot it to analyze it?”

Thank God for animal-rights groups and everybody who stood up to the DEC and protested this killing.
