Man Convicted of Shooting Robot Moose

A Nova Scotia man has been banned from hunting for 20 years after shooting a robotic moose.
Robert Lee McLaren, 49, of Pugwash Junction pleaded guilty yesterday to attempting to kill an endangered species.
He is the first person in Nova Scotia to be found guilty of the crime after shooting Bullwinkle, a full-sized moose decoy used by the Natural Resources Department to help combat the poaching of mainland moose.
