Prince Albert Man Fined $9,400 for Three Separate Fish and Wildlife Violations

Released on June 24, 2015

A Prince Albert man was found guilty of two charges under The Wildlife Act and one charge under The Fisheries Act, and was fined $9,400.

Conservation officers investigated calls made to the Ministry of Environment’s Turn In Poachers (TIP) line on September 15 and 19, 2014 regarding an individual that had been unlawfully hunting moose and elk.  The same individual was also charged in April of this year for unlawfully marketing fish.

“The public’s assistance is invaluable as we work to protect and preserve Saskatchewan’s natural resources,” Ministry of Environment Compliance and Enforcement Director Ken Aube said.  “Our laws are designed to provide effective management of wildlife and fish populations to ensure hunting and angling opportunities are available now and in the future.”

Armand Nadeau was fined $1,400 for unlawfully hunting moose in the Jansen area and was fined $7,000 on a second charge of unlawfully hunting elk.  He was also fined $1,000 for unlawfully marketing fish.

The court considered three previous wildlife-related convictions in its decision, and handed Nadeau a three year hunting suspension in addition to the fines.

If you suspect wildlife, fisheries, forestry or environmental violations, please call your local Ministry of Environment office, Saskatchewan’s toll-free Turn In Poachers (TIP) line at 1-800-667-7561 or #5555 for SaskTel cell phone subscribers, or report a violation online at www.saskatchewan.ca/conservation.  Callers may be eligible for cash rewards from the SaskTip Reward Program.
