KISBEY - Conservation officers are seeking the public’s assistance with a recent incident in southeast Saskatchewan.

According to a post Tuesday evening on the SaskTip Facebook page, Moose Mountain conservation officers received a call to the Turn in Poachers line, regarding unlawful hunting on posted land without permission. The incident occurred east of grid road 605 and north of Kisbey.

Witnesses observed four individuals in a white Ford truck shoot a cow elk on posted land, then use a tow strap to drag the animal into Moose Mountain Provincial Park to field dress and load the animal.

Officers attended the location and evidence was collected at the scene, but officers need your help in identifying the people responsible.

If you know any of the four individuals responsible, or saw anything in the area that may help further the investigation, call the Turn in Poachers line at 1-800-667-7561. You can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
