Feb. 13, 2018 – The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is encouraging citizens to help it solve natural resource violation cases.

They include poaching large and small game; unlawful hunting or shooting from a roadway; fishing out hunting out-of-season; the illegal sale of species at risk, wildlife or animal parts; taking more fish or game than allowed; dumping waste on Crown land; illegally removing sand, gravel or wood from public lands; having fires in restricted fire zones or without a permit; and illegal activities in provincial parks and protected areas.

Many of the cases go unsolved because they occur in remote areas with few witnesses.

The ministry is encouraging people who have information to call its tip line at 1-877-847-7667.

A full map of the unsolved cases can be found here.
