Hunters Fined for Violations Near Cumberland House

An official from the Canadian Wildlife Service says he thinks American hunters will think twice now before disobeying the province’s hunting rules.


Yesterday in Saskatoon, four hunters were fined 27-thousand dollars for hunting over the limit near Cumberland House last year.


They were also ordered to turn over their weapons. As well, a few of them will likely be required to testify against the outfitter that led them on their tour.


Special investigator Brian Petrar says illegal hunting activities aren’t prevalent in Saskatchewan but they do happen often enough to warrant heavy penalties.


Petrar says some of the hunters used illegal ammunition, as well.
