Houston's Richest Man Shoots a Moose from a Helicopter. No Joke.

Dan Duncan, Houston’s richest man, has laid claim to a new, more auspicious title: Houston’s richest poacher.

According to today’s Chron, the 74-year-old oil tycoon whose name appears in record books for hundreds of big-game kills, gunned down a moose and a sheep from a helicopter in Russia – and now could face criminal charges in America.

Dedicated hunters generally hate poachers since picking off a deer from a pickup truck can hardly be considered sport.

We can only imagine how he bagged all those lions. – Todd Spivak
