Albino moose shot in Vermont

http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/article/20101021/NEWS02/101021037/Albino-moose-killed-in-Northeast-Kingdom?ref=nf

Great bull.  Too bad the hunter didn't want to be identified.  Probably cause of all the idiots out there, like the ones in the comment section under the article.  He'd be afraid they'd do something to him, poor guy.  Can't stand those anti's........

I wonder if he is going to

I wonder if he is going to get it mounted?  It would be a shame if he didn't as that would be a nice unique mount.  Wonder if he had to think about what it was for a minute or two when he first saw it.  Some people think you shouldnt take albino animals, but I don't see a reason not to do it.  Online comments bring out all the nuts.  They are anonymous and feel like they can say anything.  Little pukes is all they are.

I'd like to take an albino animal, whitetail or moose would be cool.

Some People Just Don't Get It

Animals were put on this here planet for food for people. If you can also utilize the hide for clothing, etc. so much the better.

An albino animal, though rare, is no more sacred than one of normal coloration.

The same people who say that the color of an animal makes it "sacred" would fight you if you said that people of a certain color were better than others.

Congratulations to the hunter(s) who harvested this moose.

I hope they never have to take any flak from the anti's.

If you read the other

If you read the other article I posted, they now say that the hunter is a 16 year old girl who was being guided by her Dad.  It's too bad the idiots are out there, because this girl can't even identify herself.  She should be able to be known and not have to fear any of the wackos out there.  Good for the newspaper, at least they are deciding to protect her identity cause she's a minor.

You make a good point about

You make a good point about people judging an animal by its color when it is taboo to do so for people.  People just think with emotion and not reason when it comes to animals.  This is why the anti-hunting groups are so successful because they play on peoples emotion and not their reason.

That is one heck of a unique

That is one heck of a unique animal! Congratulations to that girl and her dad. That is a memory that she is never going to forget. You could not get that memory out of your head if you tried. And I am surprised that you guys are not aware that albino animals are sacred? They have special powers to heal the sick and cure blindness. ha ha I don't understand the people who make crazy comments on media network sites like that. Who do they think is listening to them?

You are right about the

You are right about the sacredness and special powers the albino moose has.  It is second only to the white bison.  But one thing you failed to mention is that the girl will have all those powers when she eats of the white moose.
