'Man riding a moose' video under investigation in B.C.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kl4kJ9TGhJA

Conservation officials in British Columbia are investigating a video that shows a man jumping on a moose and briefly riding the animal as it tried to cross a body of water.

In the video posted to YouTube on Saturday, a shirtless man is seen standing on the prow of a boat as it follows a moose wading in the water.

With the motorboat directly behind the moose, the man jumps on its back and rides the animal for a few seconds before falling off. Several people can be heard laughing from the boat.

The video, posted by B.C.-based group Wolftracker TV, has been viewed more than 80,000 times. The video caption says the incident was reported to the conservation authorities.

David Vince, a conservation sergeant in Fort St. John, said the B.C. Conservation Officer Service has received numerous calls about the minute-long clip. Based on the information received so far, “it doesn’t look like this video was taken this year,” Vince told CTVNews.ca on Monday.

Another conservation officer has been assigned to the case and is trying to determine where exactly the video was taken and track down the man who jumped on the moose, Vince said.

He said it appears the video was taken on a river.

“Wildlife harassment is an offence,” Vince said, adding that fines for convictions are determined by a judge.

A similar incident involving two boaters in Ontario led to a hefty fine in the fall of 2013.

Two men were fined a total of $2,500 for harassing a cow moose swimming in a northern Ontario lake. Video provided by witnesses showed the men circling the moose in a boat before one of them jumped on the animal.

Another version of harassment.

......................................

You ever see something so awesome? Yes, when this moron is going to be charged with harassing wildlife. $2,500 Fine and hopefully a kick in the teeth.

You can tell the moose is under duress. Some people shouldn't breed.

This guy should be abducted by people who don't speak his language, who don't dress like him and who's customs are so alien that he's convinced he's in trouble. After an hour or so, they can let him go without a word.

See how he feels about his tormenting the moose after that event. Sometimes people just need to experience something for themselves before they can imagine what it must be like for another.

White people have no respect for wilderness. The Natives lived in harmony with nature, white people destroy.

All right, cute.

Actually, I mentioned that a cash machine had given me five 100-euro notes, which was frustrating. He said "You can choose ze notes in ze cash machines." I told him I had used a cash machine that was like that, but this one didn't give me a choice, just the five 100s. He said "Douchebag cash machine."

I was impressed. Good accent, good grammar, and absolutely correct usage of a difficult slang term.

It's good to know that the high form of our language is being taught around the World.

I hope they find out who that was, too bad something painful didn't happen to him, like a good kick

in 'whatever', anywhere, as long as it hurt a lot.

people are thoughtless and don't care.

Oddly, that's true. The main reason that English is so flexible and powerful is that the English and the Americans took it all around the world and imposed it on people who then spoke it badly, simplifying its grammar and rubbing off some of the needlessly complex parts, like the six cases of Russian or the gendered nouns of non-gendered items of French and German.

Heck, English is a bastard hybrid of Germanic and Romance heritage to begin with.

maybe they should ask where the wolfmen got the video from to begin with, especially if it is a year or more old. someone found it and uploaded it to their little channel.

We're all used to hearing it spoken badly by people from all over the globe. Native English speakers will fill in the dots and try and derive somne meaning from bad pronunciations and syntax.
The French, for example will not do that and if your grammar is not impeccable, you will get that "I don't understand you. You are talking total gibberish" look, even when you are 90% there.We can even pare English down to one word sentences: Him. Go. What? Sh1t. I love that minimalism.

Folks are overreacting. Good ole boys having a harmless laugh is all. Much ado about nothing. People seem to want to go from one shaming to the next and this is just the flavour of the hour.

It's not like there's a moose shortage in Canada had the thing died. If it did he might have save the life of some poor motorist. Anywho, it's not a big deal. tell me you never fried ants with a magnifying glass or got a laugh from some confused cat or hamster as youtube seems to be rife with.

To be clear......are you throwing stones because you're innocent of all animal harassment?

we are suppose to have a much more superior brain than 'all' animals, too bad there are some who actually

don't.

the fear in that animal being chased by that boat thru the water, especially when he couldn't swim,
had to bound thru the water, and it was very clear the stupid people don't seem to understand how
they are frightening a beautiful wild animal, for their own ignorant amusement.

and, no, in answer to your question of any of us, I have never tortured any animal, tiny or big,
but I do eat meat, just in case you throw in that catagorie of being mean to animals, slightly
different, as they are not tortured like a cat with a mouse, they are just quickly killed, and
if I did see how that was done, it might drive me to be a vegetarian, not sure.

I can sit out on my deck and generally nothing is trying to hunt me. That is because I live in a day and age when I sit at the apex of the food chain and anything dangerous to me is killed by me or my neighbours long before it becomes a threat. My ancestors weren't quite so lucky and a lot of killing of predators had to be done before we all got to the point where we could be comfortable enough to question the ethics of our survival.

So fine, here we are, top of the food chain and we now wish to bestow human ethics and values on animals. I think a reasonable case can be made for not deliberately mistreating animals and am certainly not advocating that we should but what is the difference between this guy jumping on a terrified moose and me climbing onto a terrified horse to break? The moose won't drown (that would pretty much be impossible as moose not only swim but also dive to eat vegetation on lake bottoms) and far more horses have died being broke than moose have being rode. If you've every rode then you've in your own way contributed to the same torture. The guy was an idiot because the moose could have killed him. But I wish it were me. I'd also like to try and ride a bear or a muskox for the record and would be pretty damn proud if I ever did. Next year I want to go to up to Tuk to run in a herd and hand wrestle down a caribou before I get too old and feeble, an Inuit tradition. Is that bad too?

As for eating animals let me tell you. When they go to the slaughter house they can smell the death for hours and are terrified. When I take out a cow or moose it comes as a complete surprise and they aren't even aware.

I think this is a waste of resources to find and prosecute the guy.

Nothing wrong with killing a moose swiftly to eat it, but there's a lot wrong with being an A$$hole like the idiots in the video & causing it fear and gross discomfort. Anyway there is nothing to even argue about here. Spend whatever it takes to identify them, prosecute them and show them the error of their ways.

I think it takes a lot of balls to chase a moose out onto the lake and jump on it's back. I wouldn't do it personally just because you could be killed. I admire the bravery and guts that went into it though.

It aint "balls" it's the lack of brains.

That's exactly what the animal rights folks from the city like to come out and tell us about bull riding and other such "inhumane abuses".

But it's the balls.

BTW, how ya been?

Yah right, they were too stupid to know what the hazards were - NOT one ounce of guts among them!

I would figure somebody with psychopathic tendencies, feels no remorse for killing would be at the top of the food chain, are you saying you're a psychopath.

Somebody who can kill or choke the life out of another person, and enjoys it.. figure that would be the apex predator.

I'd say some of those ISIS members would be apex predators.
