Innu Nation Grand Chief Prote Poker has claimed that the delivery of caribou was organized by the Innu Nation and the Sheshatshiu Band Council and that there were nine caribou aboard the plane; all hunted in Shipiskan Lake.
According to poker, about 30 animals were killed in total, which means that there could still be around 20 carcasses remaining that haven’t been picked up.
As far as Poker knows, no Innu hunters have been arrested yet. He believes no hunters were aboard the plane when the drop off took place in Sheshatshiu, just the Big Land Aviation pilots.
Earlier this morning, Big Land Aviation owner Clarence Froude told the Labradorian that enforcement officers were in the process of getting a warrant to search the plane, which is still in the hanger. Froude says he is still waiting to see if a search warrant will be executed.
