Jul 01. 16

FORT NELSON, B.C. — Conservation officials in British Columbia say two men have been charged in connection with a moose-riding video that went viral last year.

The video posted to YouTube showed a man jumping on a moose and briefly riding the animal as it tried to cross a lake.

Chris Doyle of the B.C. Conservation Officer Service says two Fort St. John men face charges under the B.C. Wildlife Act.

He says the men are charged with harassing wildlife with the use of a boat, attempting to capture wildlife and hunting big game that was swimming.

The names of the accused have not been released but they are to make their first court appearance on Aug. 8 in Fort Nelson.

The video of the incident, which allegedly occurred in Tuchodi Lake near Fort Nelson, went viral last year after it was posted by B.C.-based group Wolftracker TV.
