RARE ALBINO MOOSE shot and killed during Moose Season in Vermont...
If you had a moose permit, would you or would you not shoot a rare species such as the Albino Moose? Even if you do not hunt, I would like to read your opinions.

Vermont's Moose Hunt by Lottery began in 1993. Out of approximately 11,000 people who applied for a permit this year, only 770 received the chance to hunt a moose during the week of October 16th-21st. One of those that received a permit was a teenage girl (under the watchful eye of her father) who ended up shooting a RARE ALBINO Moose. The first ever known to be shot legally in the State of Vermont since 1993. According to State wildlife officials, the odds to come across a rare albino moose is 1 in 100,000. Although rare, albino moose have been seen in other parts of North America and outside of it. Although Vermont has restrictions on moose hunting, there is no prohibition on shooting an albino moose. Some people don't agree. In there eyes, shooting a rare moose like this is almost like shooting a bald eagle. I am not a hunter so I would not be able to shoot any animal, but If I were a hunter I would most certainly not shoot a rare species such as the Albino Moose. What would you do? Looking forward to read your responses.

I would have left this moose alone and gone on to find one not so rare to shoot.

Do they eat what they shoot or is it just for the sport of it? I think it would make a difference for hunting regular animals, but I personally think the albino moose should have been protected an of limits. A white moose would have no chance of blending in the environment so shooting it would be like shooting fish in a barrel. It looks like it would stand out and have no chance at escape with someone out to hunt it down. That is just sad.

I don't think it is right to shoot an animal as rare as that permit or not.

I wouldn't be there either. I am NOT a hunter; and I'm proud of that. I don't think hunting anything should be a sport. As soon as I read the words "Moose Hunt", I knew it wasn't good news. To have no protection of or prohibition on a rare species because of this dumb sport is horrendous. This was a disgrace.
