At 4pm on November 18th, 2017, Outlook Conservation Officers received a TIP call regarding a black side by side with blue trim that was chasing coyotes and shooting from inside the ATV, approximately 4 miles west of Bladworth, SK. The ATV was also accompanied by an older green Chevy pick up truck and a white Chevy Avalanche. Once the individuals noticed they were being watched, they fled the area at a high rate of speed. Officers attended the location and found where a coyote was chased down and shot with a shotgun. Evidence was collected at the scene. Again, on November 28th, 2017 at approximately 4pm, a black side by side with blue trim was observed driving around sloughs only 6 miles north of where the first incident took place. Officers tried to initiate a stop but the ATV again fled the scene at a high rate of speed.
