The Moose is Loose

If Liberal Attorney General Michael Bryant can't manage to keep violent gangbangers in jail... why shouldn't there be justice for Bob the Moose?
-- TORONTO -- Come pay homage to this majestic king of the Canadian bush, now finally free from the clutches of the Ontario ministry of natural resources. Exclusive but limited engagement. One week only.
Apparently though, this wasn't an easy decision to make. I guess Demetrius had to check with his boss.
Within hours of telling the court that he wanted 30 days to consider an appeal of Justice of the Peace Ann Forfar's decision to dismiss charges against Ken Procyk, owner of the now world-famous Bob the Moose, ministry of natural resources prosecutor Demetrius Antonios Kappos waved his white flag.
C'mon Mikey... I say it's way past time to free all the imprisoned stuffed animal heads... and start going after actual criminals.

Yet another taxpayer funded boondoggle... from the people who brought you, "I won't raise your taxes expectations."


Two Ontario conservation officers -- complete with field kit of bulletproof vests and sidearms -- show up at Ken Procyk's Aurora home one day and pull out their ID.

"Are you trying to sell a moose head on eBay?" he asks.

"No," replies Procyk. "I've sold a moose head on eBay. Why? Is there some kind of problem?"

And so it began.

One man is dead and two others are in hospital after a violent Saturday night in Toronto. The man's death is the city's 71st homicide of the year - two more than in all of 2006. His name hasn't been released.

Shortly after midnight, another man, 30, was stabbed at a bar in the area of Royal York Rd. and the Gardiner Expressway.

A few hours later, police responded to another west-end shooting. Officers were called to a bar on Albion Rd., near Finch Ave. W.
On the 6 o'clock news there was also another report of a stabbing at a grocery store in Scarborough... but after certain point, you've go to stop counting.

Curiously... not a single word... regarding what part taxidermy may have played in these incidents.
