Expect roadblocks in the Nass Valley

Law enforcement officers to be busy during hunting season

  • Oct. 17, 2012 7:00 a.m.

A NUMBER of law enforcement agencies will be patrolling the Nass Valley by vehicle, by boat and by ATV as part of activities tied to hunting season.

A press release from the Nisga’a Lisims Government’s Department of Resource Enforcement says activities include random roadblocks to ensure regulations are followed.

Hunting season opens Oct. 20 and runs through Oct. 26.

“Successful hunters are required to submit their harvest data to the Nisga’a Lisims Government within three days of their harvest. The harvest allocation for the hunting season is 25 bull moose for Nisga’a hunters. The Nisga’a Fisheries & Wildlife Department held a lottery draw at random and the 25 Nisga’a hunters have since been awarded,” said the release.

The Lisims Department of Resource Enforcement along with the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP, Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Conservation Officer Service will be on patrol.

The Lisims government is worried about a shrinking moose population.

Hunters and members of the public are encouraged to report poaching or any other environmental crime to the Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-952-7277. The report a poacher/polluter line is staffed twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. The public is reminded that reports can be made anonymously,” the release continued.

The RCMP deems this to be a priority for the local detachment and will provide whatever resources and assistance to our partners this hunting season. Ultimately the RCMP can and will enforce offences under the Nisga’a and Provincial Wildlife Act should offenders be intercepted. We look forward to a safe hunting season,” said Sgt. Donovan Tait, the commanding officer of the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment.
