Moose and deer poaching ring bust leads to $130K in fines

26 arrested when operation began in 2012

Fourteen people have been fined to the tune of $130,000 in the Bas-Saint-Laurent and Gaspé regions in a moose and deer poaching ring bust.

The fines conclude an operation code-named FOVA by Quebec’s ministry of Forests, Wildlife, and Parks, which started in late 2012.

Seventy-five wildlife officers began dismantling the ring on Dec, 5, 2012, which led to 26 arrests.

The fines given out this week ranged from $200 to $19,500.  Of the 26 people arrested, 23 had their hunting licenses revoked for two years.
