Fined $1,500 For Illegally Shooting Deer

Recommended Posts

A Marathon woman has been fined $1,500 for deer hunting violations.

Trisha Brackett pleaded guilty and was fined $1,000 for discharging a firearm from and across a road and $500 for shooting a doe without a permit.

The court heard that on October 29, 2011, a member of the public reported shots in the no-discharge area of Sioux Narrows. An investigation by Ministry of Natural Resources’ conservation officers revealed that Brackett shot twice at a doe while standing on Highway 71 in Sioux Narrows. At the angle which these shots were taken, the bullets would have passed across the Kilpatrick Road.

Brackett went after the deer and killed it with a third shot. The deer was a doe, which she was not licensed to shoot. She only had a game seal for an antlered deer. The deer was forfeited to the Crown and the rifle will be returned upon payment of fines.

Justice of the Peace Robert McNally heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Kenora, on December 20, 2011.

To report a natural resources violation, call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or contact your local ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

R.T.R. Respect the resource!
