Pine City Residents Guilty of Illegal Moose Hunting

Three men from Pine City and a fourth from Ontario, Canada were found guilty last week of illegal moose hunting practices in Thunder Bay Ontario.

The Ministry of Natural Resources reports Robert Greig, 55,  Harlan Horton, 55, of Pine City and a 73-year-old from Ontario were each fined $500 for attempting to attach a seal to a bull moose.

Michael Miesner, 33, of Pine City was fined $1,500 for unlawfully hunting a bull moose.

The incident happened in October.  According to the report, the group went moose hunting in Northwestern Ontario. Miesner shot the bull moose, but was more than five kilometres away from the moose tag holder when the moose was killed. He was unable to communicate immediately with his hunting party members, including the tag holder.This is contrary to the party hunting rules under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act regulations.

The men were convicted under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.
