Losing wars and stock market collapses I can understand, but this is going too far:

But on Friday,a spokesman for the department admitted the net that held the moose came loose from the cable as the helicopter took off.
The Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources initially said the endangered moose likely died of a combination of drugs and stress.
It turns out the moose that died Thursday was dropped from a helicopter.
I like the fact that they intially tried to explain that a splattered moose actually died from being an anxiety-ridden dope fiend. If you’re going to kill a moose, at least have the dignity not to pretend he deserved it.
