Three Ontario men were fined a total of $2,750 after being convicted for a number of offences related to illegal moose hunting.

Officials with the Ministry of Natural Resources say Jim Martin, of Owen Sound, Ont., was convicted under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act and fined $2,250 for firing a gun across a highway, possessing an illegally killed moose and giving false information to an MNR conservation officer.

Calvin Crawford, of Tara, Ont., and Brian Cupskey, of Allenford, Ont., were also fined $250 each for providing false information to a conservation officer.

The court heard that on Oct. 17, 2010, the three men were driving on Highway 11 near Kashabowie when they spotted a cow moose in the ditch.

Martin got out of the vehicle, fired two shots and killed the moose that was on the opposite side of the highway.

A conservation officer later questioned the three men about the kill, but was given false information about where the animal was shot.
 
The court heard how the conservation officer had evidence that indicated the moose was shot from the highway.
 
Justice of the Peace Gene A. Bannon heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice in Thunder Bay on March 2.
