Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February LETHBRIDGE HERALD-9 Moose slaughter getting out of hand REMAINS OF SLAUGHTERED MOOSE The high-tension high wire act. ALDER FLATS, Alta. (CP) Residents of this area, about 100 miles southwest of Edmonton, are voicing their concern that the slaughter of moose along back roads is getting out of hand. And they are placing the blame on treaty Indians and white poachers former hunting legally, the latter ille- gally. An investigation this week confirmed 18 recent moose kills within 50 yards of a six- mile stretch of forestry road that links Drayton Vajley with Rocky Mountain House. "That's just this road, but you go off this road any place and it's the said Nor- man Aldrich, 29, who farms six miles southeast of Alder Flats. "There have been at least 50 killed in one nine-mile stretch of road south of here." He fears the moose population will not be able to withstand the hunting pressure of treaty Indians, who are legally entitled to kill moose for their own use on Crown land. The moose "are going to be shot Mr. Aldrich said. He added that the bulk of winter hunters in the area are treaty Indians "but I imagine some white poachers are happy to let the Indians take all the blame." Wilfred Anderson, 56, who has trapped in the nearby Buck Lake area since 1938, reports "five fresh kills along my trapline in one night and another shot on my property the same night." HUNT FROM CAR "This isn't he said. "They just shoot right from the car, and they shoot cows and calves." He suggested treaty Indians should not be permitted to shoot cows. "Pretty soon there aren't going to be any moose. Like the buffalo, they're going to be gone." Ranee Curtis, 42, a trapper from Hoadley, said most of the moose kills he has seen have been made by treaty Indians. "They take all the meat, I'll say that. They shot three and went deep into the bush to pack out one that was wounded. "I'm not against the Indian taking the moose, I'm against the white man who's been pay- ing him to shoot a moose. He noted that treaty Indians who are legally allowed to hunt are convenient scapegoats for white poachers. "The Indians are taking all the blame, but some white guys are out there, too, as long as there are Indians around to take the blame." Harold Cardinal, president of the Indian Association of Alberta, agreed there may be a problem caused by Indians hunting under treaty rights concentrating their hunts in a specific area. "What we'd really like to do is sit down with not only game officials but the private fish and game associations and work out some cooperative game management Mr. Cardinal said.

Phom 327-1M1 Canadian trapped in Russia OTTAWA (CP) Diplomatic efforts are under way to clarify the situation of a Canadian citizen trapped in the Soviet Union with his Soviet-born family, an external affairs department spokesman said Wednesday. In addition, Prime Minister Trudeau told reporters he has taken a personal interest in the case of Eugene (Jim) Lenko, 35, a native of Ste. Sophie, Que., who originally went to the Soviet Union with his Russian-born parents in 1956. At the time, it was apparently understood that Mr. Lenko could return to Canada once his parents were settled. When he eventually filed a visa application to return home, he was turned down by Soviet officials, who said he is a Russian citizen. Last summer, Mr. Lenko and Nadia Demidenko, a Canadian-born woman also trapped by imposed citizenship, staged a hunger strike in front of the Ca- nadian embassy in Moscow. Mrs. Demidenko, who has been incorrectly referred to as Mr Lenko's sister in past reports, was eventually allowed to come to Canada with her Soviet-born husband and their children but Mr. Lenko is still in th? Soviet Union. SENT PERSONAL LETTER Despite a personal letter from Mr. Trudeau confirming his Canadian citizenship, Mr. Lenko and his wife and three children have been refused permission to leave their home in Kiev. Conditional discharge granted OTTAWA (CP) Gordon Hicks, 54, a veteran Ottawa police sergeant charged with shoplifting from a food super- market, was granted a condi- tional discharge in provincial court today. Judge Michael Fitzpatrick said it was obvious the sergeant had committed a clumsy unplanned theft in the hope be would be caught and relieved of duties in the force's robbery and homicide squad "that he was not equipped to handle." "If I had the slightest suggestion that it was planned, I would not have considered a discharge for an the judge said. Hicks was charged with stealing steaks and hairspray from the supermarket.
