WHITEHORSE -- Two American hunters have been fined a total of $15,000 for shooting a rare Dall sheep just inside the Canadian border about 100 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse.

Nicholas Olson, 47, of North Pole, Alaska, was fined $10,000.

The judge also ordered Olson's hunting partner, Mark Wattenberger, 44, of South Prairie, Wash., to pay $5,000 for one count of illegally exporting the sheep into Alaska.
