Ministry Of Natural Resources Looking To Track Down Poacher Who Shot And Killed Trumpeter Swan

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry is asking the public for help tracking down the poacher of a Trumpeter Swan on Nogies Creek in Trent Lakes.

Officials say on Saturday September 25 at about 8:30 a.m. two swans were flying over the Creek, north of the bridge where Bass Lake Road crosses the creek, when one of the swans was shot and killed. There is no open season for hunting trumpeter swans. Trumpeter swans mate for life.

Anyone with information about this occurrence is asked to please contact the ministry TIPS line at 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Conservation officers continue to protect our natural resources during the current COVID-19 pandemic and would like to remind everyone that by respecting seasons, sanctuaries, bag and possession limits, we all help ensure our natural resources stay healthy.
