    Panel: Ben van Drimmelen

    Mr. Stone found a dead male Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep and applied to the Ministry for permission to keep the head. This application was refused, as the Ministry required 5 mature male heads for educational purposes, but had only 2. Mr. Stone appealed, alleging inconsistency and unfairness.

    By the time the appeal reached the Environmental Appeal Board the government had acquired 6, perhaps 7, mature male sheep heads. In spite of this new evidence, the Board found no evidence of either inconsistency or unfairness. The Board dismissed the appeal.
