    Sad that this type of thing continues to happen.

    See, now this is purely a case of “intentional” vs accidental.
    To me, the ban should be longer.
    Just another black eye for “ hunting” as the cbc and other media like to term vs poaching.

    That’s a joke of a fine and punishment. How are they allowed to hunt again?

    Probably cost more to prosecute them than the fines they got, these cases should be plus court costs. Any names to attach to this case?

    Any hunting ban is useless as they have no respect for the law or the animals they poach. Seizing their vehicles and anything else related to this poaching incident would be a good start.

    Insufficient penalties imposed for what they did.
    Has to be much stricter to be preventative IMO.

    yes fines/charges are not enough, time for hunters to show that this is unacceptable and they actually care about wildlife and right letters to there Premier/ MLAs etc
    about illegal activity to all wildlife and lack of persecution. This does not just happen to ungulates hunters are shooting bears wolves and cougars as well and leaving them.

    It’s murder, how about a murder charge? And minimum hunting ban for life and 100k fine.
