Charges have yet to be laid against the man caught on video killing and dumping a muskie on the Canadian side of the Detroit River earlier this month. According to conservation officer Kevin Sprague, from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s Southern Marine Enforcement Unit, the investigation is ongoing.
“What I can tell you is that conservation officers have now gathered sufficient information on this muskie incident and officers are going over all the evidence and information gathered and the investigation is ongoing,” Sprague told Outdoor Canada via email. “We thank the public for their assistance with this case and their concern for our natural resources in Ontario.”
A video of the killing caused outrage within the angling community after it was posted on YouTube and social media sites, including Outdoor Canada’s Facebook page. The man at the centre of the controversy has since confessed to the crime and apologized via The Windsor Star newspaper.
