Insp. Ray Noble, of Prince Rupert, BC, pleaded guilty to providing false information about a 2005 moose hunt in Yukon court earlier this month.

In September 2005, Noble shot a moose in the Pelly Lakes area.

A few days later, he made a false statement when reporting the kill in Whitehorse, according to court documents.

Now the officer is facing a $1,650 fine and a five-year hunting prohibition in the territory.

Crown lawyers dropped two of Nobel’s charges — one of altering a big game seal and the other of failing to pay the non-resident harvest fee. (LC)
