EDMONTON — A Canadian TV personality is taking heat online after he killed a cougar in northern Alberta.
Steve Ecklund, who’s the host of outdoor show “The Edge,” bragged about hunting a huge cougar earlier this month.
He called it an unreal ending to a fun-filled season.
Ecklund posted a photo of him holding the dead cougar and another of him making a stir-fry from the meat.
That triggered outrage online: dozens of people have criticized the post.
Cougar hunting is legal in Alberta from Sept. 1 to the end of February for residents, and from Dec. 1 to the end of February for non-residents.
