Fort St. John RCMP searching for stolen antlers, animal hides, and ammunition

The Fort St. John RCMP say they're on the hunt for stolen trophy antlers, hides, and ammunition, taken from an abandoned property located on the 8200 block of 98 St, after they received a report of a residential break and enter on Feb. 9.

Police officers attended and found the rear door had been kicked in and various items were stolen from the residence including 14 mule deer and whitetail antlers, one cinnamon coloured black bear hide, one grey coloured wolf hide, one mountain sheep hide, one mountain goat hide, and boxes of .22 calibre ammunition.

Some of the antlers are full skull, while others are partial, attached to metal wall stands, a press release explains.

"This collection represents years of trophy hunts and fond memories to the family," said Cst. Chad Neustaeter, Media Relations Officer for the Fort St John RCMP. "Any assistance the public can provide in potentially recovering these items would be greatly appreciated."

The Fort St John RCMP continue to investigate and are asking anyone who has information in this matter to contact the detachment at 250-787-8100 or their local RCMP.
