A Rosthern area man recently pleaded guilty to leaving an illegally shot cow moose and her calf to waste. He was fined just short of $5,000.

This April the Ministry of Environment conservation officers received information from the Turn In Poachers line regarding a moose shot on private land near Alvena with only the hind quarters removed.

Officers arrived at the scene and located the carcass of a cow moose and her unborn calf. It was also apparent a vehicle drove into the field and became stuck at one point. Officers got a description of a green car in the area that morning, and the description of the people who asked for help once stuck in the field.

Glen Paintednose, 47, of the One Arrow First Nation, pleaded guilty to unlawful hunting and waste of edible game. In addition to the fine, he lost his rifle under the province's forfeiture laws.
