Cape Breton Moose Cull Protesters Block Road

Protesters used a tractor trailer on Saturday to block a road being used for the Cape Breton Highland Park moose cull. Denis Day told the Cape Breton Post he parked the trailer to block park wardens from using a road off the Cabot Trail near North Mountain but that other traffic was being let through. Day eventually moved the truck after the RCMP threatened more serious charges but he told the post he had plans to return with the truck. Parks Canada says the moose cull is necessary as the growing population is decimating the local forest and destroying plant life that other wildlife depend on.
