Couple charged under Wildlife Act fined, must give up their Hummer
STONY PLAIN — An Edmonton couple has been ordered to pay $100,000 in fines, give up their Hummer and be banned from hunting for the next 25 years.
That was the court’s decision Tuesday after Chris Brody and Michelle Hazeloh pleaded guilty to 21 charges under the Wildlife Act.
Another 110 charges against them were dropped.
Brody, a former hunting guide, and his common-law partner faced charges including hunting with prohibited firearms, hunting on a domestic game farm and illegally abandoning animal carcasses.
The couple was charged following an extensive investigation, which involved the use of bait deer, DNA, and GPS trackers on the couple’s vehicles.
