Moose cull ends in Newfoundland national parks

Moose Gros Morne Park


CBC News::::This is the last day hunters can legally shoot moose in two national parks in Newfoundland.
Permits were issued for more than 400 moose in Gros Morne and Terra Nova.
Parks Canada says it hopes letting hunters into the parks will help prevent hungry moose from turning forests into fields.
