This year, there have been multiple high-profile poaching cases in Alberta. According to the Calgary Herald, 2015 was a particularly rough for grizzlies, with 28 fatalities, eight of which from poaching. That number is up from 19 total deaths in 2014. Likewise, two men were prosecuted for hunting black bears and wolves with illegal bait and traplines, and two other men killed and, ultimately, wasted a moose, according to the Calgary Sun. Officials are still investigating other cases, as well.
