CA BC: Man fined $2,000 for illegal wolf trap

Alaska Highway News

A Fort St. John man has been fined $2,000 for illegally trapping a wolf near the Halfway and Graham Rivers in 2016.

Dave Gerber was handed the fine under Wildlife Act regulations, along with a two-year probation order in court on Nov. 5. He was also barred from trapping for two years, and ordered to pay a $300 victim surchage.

The BC Conservation Officer Service says one of its officers responded to an illegal trapping complaint about the use of a large treble hook set for wolves. Court records show the trapping took place between Jan. 1 and Feb. 6, 2016.
