Re: Moose hunting banned: Tl’etinqox-tin, Tuesday, July 10 Tribune.

Chief Joe Alphonse, we have to look at the true problem, and that’s the shooting of the cows and calves.

One can’t have a strong moose population when people shoot the breeding stock. It’s that simple.

We should adopt the laws they have in Alaska, where the poachers get a $10,000 fine or two years in jail.

I would like to see a ban on the shooting of cow and calf moose everywhere.
