Hunter fined for illegal dog-tracking devices

A Nelson man was fined $2,250 in the Nelson District Court yesterday for using illegal dog tracking equipment.

Dean Burke had earlier pleaded guilty to using unlicensed radiocommunications equipment and hunting unlawfully, after being found hunting in Pearse Valley, south of Motueka on 5 August 2014.

The sentencing judge also imposed court costs, and 70 hours community work for the illegal hunting charge.
