Hunting down camera thieves

Wildlife enthusiast wants his trail camera back from thieves who went to great lengths to steal it.

Editor,

I had a motion-activated bush camera that takes a picture every 15 seconds whenever there is movement within its range. This is my hobby, taking pictures of wildlife. It gets me out with nature and I can shoot wildlife without a gun.

Last week I went to pick up my camera and download the pictures. When I got there, it was gone. The thief went to considerable effort to steal it, breaking through a padlock and pipe stripping.

Mr. Thief, I know who you are. I have pictures of you casing my camera. If you are a hunter, you have no ethics. If you are not a hunter, you are just a common vandal.

I even left a note saying I  would send you pictures from the camera, including my phone number.

Please send the memory card to me as it is no use to you.

This also applies to whoever stole the camera from the Downie Creek area!

Clancy Boettger,
