Saskatoon Man Fined $5,600 for Unlawful Hunting

Released on August 26, 2014

A Saskatoon man recently pleaded guilty to three charges under The Saskatchewan Wildlife Act and Regulations and was fined $5,600 in provincial court in Kindersley.

Donald Scheuerman, was convicted of unlawfully possessing wildlife, hunting on posted land without permission and wasting game.  In addition to the fines, the court also ordered a five-year prohibition from hunting wildlife in Saskatchewan.

The charges were laid as the result of an investigation by the Ministry of Environment in November of 2013.

Conservation officers determined that Scheuerman had illegally shot a white-tailed deer on private, posted land south of Kindersley.  He had then cut a portion of the skull and antlers off and left the rest to waste.

The initial investigation came about as a result of a citizen complaint.

A subsequent search of his residence in Saskatoon revealed the cut-off deer antlers, as well as other untagged antlers.  The investigation was concluded with assistance from Alberta Fish and Wildlife, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, RCMP Firearms, DNA and Firearms Forensic Services and Saskatchewan Ministry ofJustice.
“People who kill animals illegally are stealing from the law-abiding hunters of our province,” Ministry of Environment Compliance and Enforcement Director Ken Aube said.  “Our officers worked closely with other agencies to bring this case to a successful conclusion, which we hope will deter others who may think about abusing our wildlife resources.”
