Conviction on illegal outfitting, possession of wildlife.

Wayne Whitehead, from the Pelican Lake First Nation, has been fined for illegal outfitting in the province and unlawful possession of wildlife. A complaint was first made against Whitehead in November 2012. An investigation by conservation officers found Whitehead was unlawfully outfitting by providing a hunt outside his authorized area on First Nation land. A second complaint in February 2013 led conservation officers to find Whitehead was in unlawful possession of a moose. "Illegal outfitting and hunting rob the people of Saskatchewan, and the provincial government is committed to ensuring those who abuse our wildlife resources are prosecuted," said Ken Aube with the ministry of environment. Whitehead was convicted and fined $4,900 on Dec. 23 in North Battleford provincial court.
