Illegally dumped pelts prompt ministry to ask for public's help
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is trying to track down the people who discarded a large quantity of animal pelts in the White River area.
The MNRF said the incident happened last August and details were publicized on a Crime Stoppers episode, but a news release has only been released this week.
The furs and remains included beaver, lynx, marten, fisher, wolf, otter, weasel, muskrat and mink.
The ministry said anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the MNRF TIPS line at 1-877-847-7667, toll-free, any time, or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). The ministry can also be contacted during business hours at 705-856-4724.
An MNRF spokesperson told CBC News the ministry hopes area trappers might have information that will assist conservation officers in their investigation.
