The unidentified men pleaded guilty in provincial court to Wildlife Act offences in connection with the incident.

They were fined after pleading to guilty to harassing wildlife with a vehicle and unlawful possession of dead wildlife.

In January of last year, witnesses contacted conservation officers after watching two men in a truck run down a coyote at Tachik Lake, near Vanderhoof.

Officers were able to track down the vehicle, and later determined the suspects ran down and injured the coyote before killing it with a machete.

The driver of the vehicle was fined $5,000 and suspended from hunting for three years. The passenger was fined $500.
