Renfrew Man Pleads Guilty to Hunting Charges

A Renfrew man has been fined $1,000 for an offence under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.

Tim Lacourse has pleaded guilty to hunting on private property and was fined $1,000 for trespassing to hunt.

Court heard that on November 11, 2017, Lacourse shot at a deer on private property off Stones Road outside Renfrew. Lacourse was confronted by the property owners and a conservation officer subsequently responded to a call into the MNRF Tips line. 

The ministry reminds the public that it is illegal to trespass to hunt.
