A widely shared social media post is part of an effort to track down someone who left the carcasses of dozens of birds to rot in a field.
According to a post on the Sasktip Facebook page, conservation officers were called Oct. 21 to a field on Swarthmore Road just outside Unity, Sask.
They found the carcasses of 44 snow geese, 26 ducks and three greater white-fronted geese. The birds had apparently been shot, dumped and left to waste.
Conservation officials believe the birds were left in the field sometime between the night of Oct.17 and the morning of Oct. 18.
Sasktip Secretary Daryl Minter said the organization shared a post Nov. 12 detailing the incident to help spread the word and hopefully find the person responsible.
Sasktip is an independent charity that works to help Saskatchewan conservation officers solve incidents of poaching and other wildlife-related offences, similar to the Crime Stoppers charity that works with police to collect anonymous tips on crime.
