Police in Kimberley, B.C., say they caught two men wearing disguises and vandalizing deer traps on Thursday.
The pair are from Invermere — which has been a hot bed of opposition to the controversial deer cull taking place in the Kootenays — and appeared at a bail hearing shortly after being caught.
The two men are now facing charges of mischief and wearing a disguise while committing an offence. Cpl. Chris Newell of the Kimberley RCMP say they may also face charges under the Wildlife Act.
Several communities in southeast B.C. committed to a large-scale deer cull several years ago, after the deer population exploded and started becoming a nuisance. Several people and pets have reportedly been attacked.
