Prince Albert Area Men Fined $8,951 for Wildlife and Criminal Code Violations

Released on January 7, 2016

Two Prince Albert area men recently pleaded guilty to five separate charges under The Wildlife Act and The Criminal Code of Canada and were fined a total of $8,951.

Conservation officers investigated calls made to the Ministry of Environment’s Turn In Poachers (TIP) line in February 2015, regarding a bull elk that had been shot out of season on private farmland near St. Louis.  The investigation resulted in two men being charged.

Doug Carl Risling of Prince Albert pleaded guilty to four charges, including unlawfully hunting elk, unlawful possession of caribou antlers, illegal storage of a handgun and possession of a restricted handgun without a licence.  Risling was fined $6,640 and received a one year period of probation.  He was ordered to complete a Federal Firearms Training course and received a two year suspension from hunting and trapping.

James J. Hryciuk, a landowner in the St. Louis area, pleaded guilty to one count of assisting in unlawfully hunting elk and was fined $2,310.  Hryciuk also received a two year hunting and trapping suspension.

The Crown seized the elk antlers, elk meat, caribou antlers and a Browning handgun with magazines and ammunition.

If you suspect wildlife, fisheries, forestry or environmental violations, please call your local Ministry of Environment office, Saskatchewan’s toll-free Turn In Poachers (TIP) line at 1-800-667-7561 or #5555 for SaskTel cell phone subscribers, or report a violation online at www.saskatchewan.ca/conservation.  Callers may be eligible for cash rewards from the SaskTip Reward Program.
