A group of Quebec Innu have killed up to half of a herd of threatened Labrador caribou in a bizarre bid to force the Newfoundland government to recognize their land claim.
It's "sheer madness and lunacy" says the province's minister of natural resources. "This hunt will not be tolerated," Ed Byrne said Tuesday. "They undertook nothing less than what I would describe as a slaughter of the caribou in this area."
