3 charged with poaching

The B.C. Conservation Officer Service has had charges approved against three people in connection to an alleged poaching incident in Penticton’s Greyback Mountain Road area early this year.

Fred, Felix, and Cole Kruger have been charged with three counts for a January 29 incident where two elk were allegedly harvested on private land.

Residents complained to the COS immediately following the incident. Landowner Victoria Kryzanowski told Castanet at the time she’s never given permission to anyone to hunt on the land.

The three men are charged with discharging a firearm in a no shooting area, trespassing and illegally possessing dead wildlife.

One of the accused, Fred Kruger, was recently elected to Penticton Indian Band council.

PIB communications coordinator Dawn Russell said Fred was unable to comment until later in the week.

The men make their first court appearance Jan. 3, 2018.
