Man convicted of shooting robot moose

160_moose_051116.jpgA man has been banned from hunting for 20 years after shooting a robotic moose.

Robert Lee McLaren is the first person in Nova Scotia to be found guilty of the crime after shooting Bullwinkle, a full-sized moose decoy used by the Natural Resources Department to help combat the poaching of mainland moose . The animals became an endangered species in 2003.

Eight Guysborough County residents also charged with shooting the decoy will go to court later this spring.

Check also the robotic deer.

GIS for Robot Moose produced interesting results:

From http://burrowburrow.com/, an artist that makes animal sculptures out of broken electronics. This is exactly what I was looking for when I searched for "Robot Moose"
Some days I love the intarweb.
