On October 8th, 2021 Spiritwood Conservation Officers received information through the Turn In Poachers Line regarding a large number of migratory birds which had been shot, dumped, and left to waste near Sunset View Beach at Turtle Lake, SK. Upon investigation, officers determined that a total of 150 birds had been dumped, with only 12 having any meat removed. It is believed the birds were dumped between the evening of October 7th and the morning of October 8th. Conservation Officers need the public’s help to solve this crime.
