A Vuntut Gwitchin man has been fined for hunting without permission on the traditional territory of another First Nation.
Kenneth Nukon was caught hunting on Champagne and Aishihik First Nations land in November 2011.
He did not have permission from the First Nation to hunt in the area, according to Melissa Madden, communications officer with Environment Yukon.
Nukon was convicted in court last week and fined $1,000 under the Wildlife Act.
He was also banned from obtaining a hunting licence until September 2016.
“The individual must attend and successfully complete a hunter education and ethical development workshop prior to the issuance of any future licences,” Madden said.
