A pair of hunters who were recently found guilty in one of the biggest poaching cases in the state of Missouri is facing numerous charges in Saskatchewan as well.
David Berry Jr. made headlines recently when he was sentenced to a year in prison as part of a poaching ring in Missouri. The case revolved around trophy bucks being taken for their heads, and the bodies being left to waste.
As part of his sentence, Berry Jr. was also ordered to repeatedly watch the movie Bambi as part of the sentence.
Berry Jr., along with Cody Scott, is facing charges under The Wildlife Act for an incident dating back to 2016.
The pair had come to Canada, stating they were going to be hunting ducks. Instead, they shot and killed a number of white-tailed deer, an antelope, a coyote and a badger. They then returned to the United States with their illegal cargo.
Under The Wildlife Act, Berry Jr. faces eight charges, with potential fines exceeding $15,000. Scott faces 14 charges with potential fines totalling more than $25,000. They are also facing a one year prohibition from hunting.
Two men from Saskatchewan were charged with aiding and abetting the American duo. They voluntarily paid a fine of $6,250 and were suspended from hunting for a year.
