Coalition To Protect America's National Parks

"A hunting guide from Jackson Hole who shot and killed a young female gray wolf inside the park late last year has pled guilty to unlawful taking of wildlife and been sentenced to a $5,000 fine, loss of wolf hunting privileges for a year, and a year s probation. His wife, who was with him at the time, was not charged.

The penalties were not more significant because the guide, who said he didn t know he was in the park, complied fully with the investigation and readily admitted his guilt. He told rangers that he was hunting along the park s boundary and lost track of his location. Said Michael Nash, the park s chief ranger: The individuals were just honest and forthright about it. We didn t detect any ill intent.

Lost track of his location? A guide?
Hunting when government was shut down? Good choice
Can't hunt wolves for a year? Wow!

And the beat goes on.
