The Ministry of Natural Resources is seeking the public’s help in solving cases.

The unlawful shooting and abandonment of moose across Ontario.

A number of investigations are currently ongoing. The ministry has evidence that the hunter or hunters were aware the animal had been shot and killed, and that the moose carcass was abandoned intentionally.

Individual hunters are only permitted to lawfully hunt an adult male (bull), adult female (cow) or a calf depending on the moose tag they possess. Hunters who mistakenly shoot a moose to which they are not entitled are encouraged to contact a conservation officer immediately to have the circumstances of the situation investigated.

Moose hunting in Ontario is highly regulated, and the majority of hunters respect the laws established to ensure the future of this activity. Moose hunters bring a significant economic benefit to many small communities across the province and travel great distances to participate in the hunt.

If you have any information about these cases or any natural resources violation, please call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or contact your ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
