2,000 In Fines For Illegal Deer Hunting

April 30, 2018 - A Shedden man has been fined a total of $2,000 for deer hunting offences under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.

Ian Chinnery pleaded guilty and was fined $1,000 for hunting deer during a controlled deer hunt without a valid validation tag and $1,000 for making a false statement in an application to obtain a controlled deer hunt validation tag.

Court heard that on November 20, 2017, conservation officers were inspecting hunters during the controlled deer hunt south of Iona. The officers contacted Chinnery in his hunting blind but he was not hunting at the time. Two days later, when conservation officers again contacted Chinnery, he was hunting. The officers determined that, since their initial contact with him, Chinnery had applied for and obtained a controlled deer hunt validation tag for farmers/landowners but had provided false information on his application by misrepresenting the amount of land he owned.

Justice of the Peace Jamie Shortt heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, St. Thomas, on April 26, 2018.
