Poachers kill wood bison in park
A poaching incident is being investigated in Wood Buffalo National Park.
Hunters on snowmobiles chased down and killed a bison near Peace Point Indian Reserve last weekend. The meat was removed and transported to a nearby road.
Wood bison are protected. Hunting bison in the national park carries a maximum penalty of $10,000 and six months in jail.
Both the RCMP and park wardens are investigating.
They ask anyone with information to call the Wood Buffalo National Park office.
