*SOLVED* Sasktip Crime of the Month – August 2016

Thanks to your help, this case is already solved!

In December of 2015, Conservation Officers received information regarding a herd of elk that had been shot at in the Kipling area. Officers investigated the scene and found one wounded and two dead elk which had been left to waste. As a result of information received through the Turn In Poachers Line, Conservation Officers were able to identify the responsible party. Charges were laid and fines in excess of $5,300 were handed down by the court.
