Yukoner Clayton Thomas convicted for killing 2 wolves


A Whitehorse man has been found guilty of violating the Yukon Wildlife Act for killing two wolves near his home, in 2013.

Clayton Thomas was convicted of three charges — illegally hunting wolves, dangerous use of a firearm, and illegal trafficking (Thomas had planned to sell the pelts). Several other charges were stayed.

Thomas shot the wolves a few days apart in April 2013, near his property in the Mount Sima subdivision. He said the animals had been lurking around his neighbourhood and he was worried for the safety of his family, and others.
