Police are hunting a man who was filmed jumping onto the back of a moose from a moving boat.

The 'moron' pictured in the clip will be charged with animal abuse if found, according to police in British Columbia. 

Conservationists are also reportedly analysing the video in the hopes of identifying the man after the footage emerged last week. 

In the short clip the man is seen jumping from the boat onto the animal's back from a moving boat. 

The moose is seen struggling to get away from the boat as the man lands on his back. 

The men in the boat who are filming the cruel incident are heard laughing in the background.
