THREE QUEBEC HUNTERS ACCUSED OF POACHING

3 December 2003

SASKATOON - A bizarre tip-off led Saskatchewan conservation officers to arrest three Quebec hunters accused of poaching.

One of the hunters tried to ship some antlers back home by Purolator courier, but conservation officer Doug Lucyshyn says that didn't work.

"One of the boxes, or more, began to leak some blood," says Lucyshyn.

The courier sent the leaky shipment back to the Macklin Motor Inn where the hunters had been staying, and the hotel owner contacted conservation authorities.

Officers seized the antlers and on Saturday they arrested the hunters. Lucyshyn says he has never seen a case quite like this one.

"I don't think I can remember in my experience as an officer in this province such a total disregard for wildlife."

Lucyshyn says by the time it was over at least 15 bucks were shot illegally and only their antlers were taken.

He says on Monday, the three Quebecers were fined a total of $15,000 and they won't be allowed to hunt in Saskatchewan for the next three years.
