CHIBOUGAMAU, QC, Sept. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - The Ministère des Ressources
naturelles et de la Faune (MRNF), Nord-du-Québec region, invites hunters to
submit to the Department on a voluntary basis the pelts and antlers of moose
bagged during the sport hunting season for use for handicraft purposes by the
Cree communities present on its territory.
The aim of this initiative is to maximize the use of these anatomical
parts which, in most cases, end up in landfill sites. The Direction de la
protection de la faune is collaborating in this collection on behalf of the
Cree communities having expressed an interest in this operation.
Hunters will be free to visit at any time the office of the Direction de
la protection de la faune located at 951, boulevard Hamel, in Chibougamau.
They will be able to leave their moose pelts and antlers in a box that is
available for this purpose outside the office, without further formality.
The Direction de la protection de la faune du Nord-du-Québec and the Cree
communities would like to thank all hunters who kindly agree to contribute to
this harvest operation.
