    ^^^^^^Are you serious? Murder? Seize everything used while they were poaching and give them 6 months in jail.

    If the government gives all our land away and restricts access there will be a lot more of this unfortunately
    I like drinking beer and whiskey, shooting guns, jetboating, love a nice rack and a tight line, I am simply a sophisticated redneck...

    So larger penalties than property theft or B&E or rape?
    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

    Simon Fraser had pretty good judgement on what he found in BC

    Yup, harvesting them for meat is one thing, but leaving 2 to spoil is unacceptable in every way...I hope they throw the book at them..

    Take hunting license away for life simple and a good fine.

    page 20 of the regs
    DISPOSAL OF CARCASSES OR WILDLIFE PARTS
    4Carcasses or part of a carcass of an animal or fish are included in the Wildlife
    Act definition of an attractant. Other than for the purpose of hunting in accordance with the provisions of the Wildlife Act and regulations, it is prohibited to provide, leave, or place an attractant in, on or about any land or premises where there are or where there are likely to be people in a manner in which the attractant could attract danger- ous wildlife to the land or premises and be accessible to dangerous wildlife. A person that commits an offence under this provision is liable, on a first conviction, to a fine up to $50,000 and/or a term of imprisonment not exceeding 6 months.

    Not exactly the same scenario as poaching but if the penalty for disposing of a carcass/parts of a carcass is up to $50,000 and 6 months in jail, then why can’t the penalty for poaching 3 moose be seizure of items used while poaching, $100,000 and 6 months in jail?

    I also don’t agree with the short sentencing for rape, b&e or theft of property.
    If poaching was labeled as murder when charging someone with poaching….it could mean the end of hunting….after all wouldnt buying tags and going hunting then be considered legalized murder. We all know that’s how the anti hunting crowd would try to spin it.

    Not nearly enough punishment. Vehicles and all firearms should be seized, maybe even the home. Jail time is warranted. Let's have some photos of the 2 poachers so they can be shamed publicly.

    Except that they were POACHING, and you don’t need a hunting license to do that, so who would care if they were taken away??!!
    If we’re not supposed to eat animals, how come they’re made out of meat?

    PLUS COSTS, don't forget the hefty costs of courts, judges, sheriffs etc etc etc, there is no way the fines/penalties should cost taxpayers a nickle.

    I don't resent someone sustenance hunting for their family (regardless of race), but leaving the moose to rot is unacceptable.
