IMMEDIATE MORATORIUM ON HUNTING AND TRAPPING IN AREAS IMPACTED BY BC WILDFIRES
“[Chief of Tl'etinqox First Nation Joe] Alphonse showed Metro a series of photographs of dead and burned horses in the fire-affected areas of his people's territories, and said what's even more worrying is that since the horses are so difficult to catch, there were likely even more fire casualties among large game species relied on for food, such as moose, who cannot flee fire as quickly.”
