Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry

April 5, 2018 - A Thamesville man has been fined $2,700 for hunting offences under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.

Fred Squire pleaded guilty and was fined $2,500 for having a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle and $200 for failing to wear a hunter orange garment.

Court heard that on December 5, 2017, conservation officers were conducting compliance inspections of deer hunters in the Chatham-Kent area. The officers observed Squire, who had been deer hunting, leave the area in his vehicle and drive to a nearby residence. An inspection by the officers found a rifle and muzzleloader gun, both loaded, in the vehicle. Squire was also not wearing a hunter orange garment, required while deer hunting during the open gun season.

Justice of the Peace Calvin Hurst heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Chatham-Kent, on April 4, 2018.

The ministry reminds the public that it is illegal to have a loaded firearm in a vehicle.
