Seems like everyone had something to say about the killing of this female moose.

It was all classic Facebook jabber until one user escalated the conversation to the point of serious concern. 

The user went so far as to send a real death threat message saying that it was the wildlife officer who "deserved the ball between the two ears, no?"

The officer took this threat on his life seriously and immediately reached out to  Quebec Police (Sûreté du Québec), who then subsequently opened an investigation.

Later, The Union of Wildlife Protection Officers of Quebec caught wind of this conflict and decided to make an official post clarifying the details of the killing for the public, ultimately, explaining that it was the best decision for this very sick animal. Here is the Facebook post.

The president of the association gave a public warning as a result of this incident and says that, no threat to a wildlife officer will be tolerated during the upcoming hunting season.
