Crime Stoppers crime of the week

Crime Stoppers and New Brunswicks Department of Public Safety are seeking the publics help in an attempt to stop illegal hunting practices here in New Brunswick.

The hunting and trapping of animals out of season is a recognized illegal activity. Another very serious offence is the hunting of deer, moose, and other animals at night.

In New Brunswick, night hunting is a major offence under the Fish and Wildlife Act. It takes unfair advantage of our wildlife by using a light, and it is an inherently unsafe act.

The Department of Public Safety, the New Brunswick Wildlife Federation, and hunters, along with Crime Stoppers, believe that the majority of citizens in the province deplore such activity.

Anyone who has information on this illegal activity but who wishes to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), texting TIP212 + a message to 'CRIMES' (274637), or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest.
