Hunters Kill Rare 'Spirit Animal' Albino Moose! Ugh!

Hunters killed a spirit animal albino moose!!

Horrible!

Three hunters in Nova Scotia sadly murdered a rare albino moose, which is considered to be a spirit animal by the indigenous Mi'kmaq community.

The white moose has been living in the Belle Cote forest for many years and even though killing the spirit animal isn't illegal, it's still sad, and is considered blasphemous to the indigenous people.

…Especially considering the fact that the hunters posed pics gleefully with the dead animal and posted them on Facebook.

A Mi'kmaq hunter explained why their community would never harm the albino moose and it's importance, saying:

"We are not to harm [white animals] in any way, shape, or form because they could be one of our ancestors coming to remind us of something significant that’s going to happen within our communities. It was so disrespectful having seen it put on social media, and it’s been an outcry and our people are outraged."

After hearing about how the animal is considered sacred, the three hunters have not only apologized but also have turned over the moose's body to the Mi'kmaq people for a proper ceremony.

The hunters allegedly said that they wouldn't have shot the animal had they known of its significance to the Mi'kmaq community.

It's awful that this moose died but we're glad these hunters at least tried to make it right.
