Oregon Poachers Nailed With Big Fines
Kpic.com has the story of three different poaching investigations that netted over $22,000 in fines. Oregon passed a new trophy poaching provision back in January of 2010, that escalates the penalty for poaching trophy class game to as much as $15,000 in fines. Since the law went into effect, new charges and convictions are being brought under the new law.
An Alsea man who pleaded guilty to killing a trophy elk has been ordered to pay over $15,000 in fines, and two Lebanon who admitted illegally killing trophy deer face over $4,000 in fines each.
