Manitoba Wildlife Federation takes aim at nighttime hunting
The Manitoba Wildlife Federation is calling on the province to ban spotlighting during nighttime hunting after a bullet tore through a bedroom near Winnipegosis and just missed a woman's head.
"My in-laws getting their house shot at has got me very frustrated," Wayne Lytwyn said at a press conference in Winnipeg. "Hunting at night is not a safe practice."
On Sept. 10 last year, Lytwyn's in-laws ranchers Victor and Doreen Sliworsky were asleep in their home, near Winnipegosis, when a rifle bullet ripped through their window frame at 4 a.m.
