EDMONTON — In a rare move, an Alberta hunting guide has been sentenced to jail for poaching wildlife.

EDMONTON — In a rare move, an Alberta hunting guide has been sentenced to jail for poaching wildlife.

Sustainable Resource Development says Dollard Dallaire of North Star was sentenced to four months in jail on Nov. 9 and is banned from being a hunting guide for five years.

In July, Dallaire was fined $55,200 for guiding hunts that resulted in the illegal killing of 35 black bears, moose, deer and other animals.

At that time he was also banned from hunting or leading hunts for two years.

Dallaire had pleaded guilty to hunting without a licence and unlawful possession of wildlife.

The department says poaching damages wildlife populations and hurts the reputation of the multimillion-dollar guided hunting industry.
