Manitoba conservation officials are continuing their crackdown on illegal night hunting in the province.

Officers charged two men on November 11 for illegally killing a bull moose.

Conservation officers conducted an investigation in the Minto area and determined the moose was shot off a municipal road on private land. One man from Minto was charged with discharging a firearm off of a municipal road, as well as possessing illegally taken wildlife and was issued a warning for hunting on private land without permission.

The second man, from Millet, Alberta, was also charged for possessing illegally taken wildlife and issued a warning for hunting on private land without permission. Both men were issued a restitution notice for $2,500 for the moose.

Officers seized one bull moose and a rifle. The moose was dropped off at Killarney Meats who will process the moose meat free-of-charge so it can be donated to local food banks.

As the investigation is ongoing, further charges may be pending.
