Two men have been fined a total of $8,400 in Saskatoon provincial court for unlawfully hunting moose in the Langham area.
A call came in to the Ministry of Environment’s line for reporting poachers in November 2014, prompting an investigation by conservation officers from Saskatoon and North Battleford.
Steve Bullock of Langham pleaded guilty to hunting illegally and unlawful possession of a moose and Gerald Honsinger of Saskatoon pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a moose.
They both also have hunting suspensions.
A third person who assisted Bullock with loading and transport of the moose has donated $500 to the SaskTip program and $500 to the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation for its Hunt for Hunger program.
The seized moose was donated to the Saskatoon food Bank under that program.
