    Conservation officers from Saskatoon and North Battleford found a vehicle towing a trailer containing an untagged bull moose.

    It was found that the moose had been shot in an area where there was no active open season for moose hunting.

    “There wasn’t a moose season in that area at the time of the offence, nor did the hunters have a required draw moose licence for this zone,” said Ken Aube, the province’s chief of enforcement and investigation with the Ministry of Environment.

    “I’m confident that the penalties in this case will help deter others from this illegal type of activity.”
