What happens if I’m caught harvesting inside the Mobile Zone?
- An officer will investigate the scene.
- If the officer determines that the caribou may have been harvested illegally, they will seize the caribou meat.
- The officer may ask for a voluntary statement from you for the investigation file.
- The officer will write up a violation report, and after an investigation is under way, you will be told the next steps.
- If the investigation indicates there has been an illegal harvest in the Mobile Zone, a charge will be laid and you will get a date for a court appearance.
- If the officer seizes your meat and ENR is not able to store the meat until the court process is complete:
- The officer will write up a disposition order to decide who will receive the meat.
- You will receive notice that a disposition hearing is set with a Justice of the Peace.
- You can state your case to keep the meat at the hearing. If it is decided you can’t keep it, the meat becomes the property of the GNWT.
- The GNWT will then give the meat to a charitable organization.
