TIP Call Helps Solve Moose Poaching Case Near Saskatoon

Released on October 3, 2017

A Rosthern area man recently pleaded guilty to charges related to an incident this spring where a moose was illegally shot and left to waste.  The individual was fined a total of $4,998.

In April 2017, Ministry of Environment conservation officers received information from a call to the Turn In Poachers line regarding a moose that had been shot on private land near Alvena, with only the hind quarters removed.

Officers arrived at the scene and located a cow moose.  They also discovered that the moose was pregnant and her calf was lying dead beside her.  It was also apparent a vehicle drove into the field and became stuck at one point.

Landowners in the area were contacted and officers were able to get a description of a green car that was in the area that morning as well as a description of the occupants who had asked for help to get unstuck from the field.

With this information, officers were able to obtain a search warrant and conducted a search of a residence where evidence was collected from the trunk of a car.

Glen Paintednose, 47, of the One Arrow First Nation, pleaded guilty to unlawful hunting and waste of edible game under the Saskatchewan Wildlife Act and Regulations.  In addition to the fine, the individual’s rifle was forfeited to the Crown.

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