A Chugiak, Alaska man has been charges with cruelty to animals and the illegal discharge of a weapon, when he shot at a moose that was lounging around in the man’s backyard. He shot the moose in the nose with a .44 caliber handgun. The man told officials he was trying to put the moose out of its misery because it looked like the moose was sick.

Authorities arrived at the scene after neighbors called to report that they had heard several gunshots. They followed a blood trail until they located the moose which seemed to be fine. Officials said that other than a bloody nose, the moose looked healthy. They left the moose alone believing it would be just fine.

It’s a good thing they don’t shoot people who might need to be put out of our misery.
