A Camlachie man has been fined and his hunting licence has been suspended after shooting at a bull moose on a hunting trip.

The Ministry of Natural Resources says on Oct. 9, 2022, a conservation officer investigated a moose being killed on a road near Ear Falls. Justice of the Peace Jerry Woods presided over the case in Red Lake Oct. 11 and heard Remo Iacobelli of Camlachie fired several shots at a bull moose while he and the moose were on the road.

Officials say Iacobelli failed to “take reasonable consideration for people in the area and anyone that could have been travelling on the roadway.”

Iacobelli plead guilty to careless use of a firearm while hunting. He was fined $7,000, had his hunting licence suspended for two years and is required to retake the hunter education course.
