On August 18, 2018, Melfort Conservation Officers received information through the TIP line regarding an animal that had been shot at in a field and a vehicle driving onto private land, through a standing wheat crop to retrieve it.

Officers investigated the scene 3.5 miles North of Struthers Lake and determined that the animal was unlawfully harvested between August 15 and August 17. Officers also determined that four shots were fired from a rifle, and the vehicle then drove into the field and loaded the animal without processing it. There was no hunting season open during this time.

Conservation Officers need the public’s help to solve this case. If you have any information related to this case, call the toll-free TIP line 1-800-667-7561 or #5555 from a Sasktel cellphone (phone calls only, no text messages). Violations can also be reported online at saskatchewan.ca/tip.  You can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward if your information leads to a conviction.
