Man Convicted of Shooting Robot Moose

A man from Pugwash Junction, Nova Scotia, pleaded guilty yesterday to attempting to kill an endangered species.

He is the first person in Nova Scotia to be found guilty of the crime after shooting Bullwinkle, a full-sized robot moose decoy used by the Natural Resources Department to help combat the poaching of mainland moose.

The animals became an endangered species in 2003.
[I think the article means that the moose is the endangered species, not the robot decoy.]

He shot the decoy near Thomson Station, N.S., on Nov. 2.
He has been banned from hunting for 20 years and must also pay a $4,025 fine, and forfeit his car and rifle. - Canada - Man shoots robotic moose
