Melfort Conservation Officers received a TIP call on August 18th, 2018, regarding someone shooting an animal and driving onto a standing wheat crop to retrieve it. Sometime between August 15th and August 17th, 2018, an animal was unlawfully harvested on private land, 3.5 miles North of Struthers Lake. It was determined that four shots were fired from a rifle. A vehicle then drove into the field and loaded the animal without processing it. There was no hunting season open during this time. Officers were able to collect some evidence at the scene.
