November 14, 2014  – Environment Yukon is investigating the discovery of over 40 lbs. of abandoned moose meat near Jackson Lake, Whitehorse, on November 10. Conservation officers are asking the public for any information on this case. Call the TIPP line (1-800-661-0525) or file a report online.
November 3, 2014 – Environment Yukon has ordered an emergency closure for caribou hunting starting November 5. The affected area includes the Dempster Highway from km 77 (North Fork Pass) to km 195 (Ogilvie River Bridge). Because the vast majority of the caribou in these sub-zones belong to the Hart River herd, harvesting rights under the Porcupine Caribou Management Agreement do not extend to these sub-zones at this time. Learn more.
October 31, 2014  – Environment Yukon is investigating the harvest of a bison on or shortly before Wednesday, Oct. 8. This harvest took place in a closed area and has not been reported.

Call the TIPP line (1-800-661-0525), file a report online, or call the District Office at 867-634-2247.
