A Walford-area man has been fined $1,500 for hunting offences under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, said the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Ronald Sangster pleaded guilty to two charges for hunting white-tailed deer on a property without landowner permission. His firearm was seized at the time of the offence and will be returned once the fine has been paid.

Court heard that in November 2013, conservation officers responded to a complaint of a hunter trespassing and killing a deer on private property.

Upon investigation, it was found that Sangster had killed two deer without the required written permission.

Justice of the Peace James Bubba heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice in Gore Bay, on Feb. 6, 2014.

People who want to hunt white tailed deer on Manitoulin, Barrie and Cockburn Islands must have written permission from landowners to hunt on their property.
