SaveElk.com Founder Charged With Felony Poaching
Back in October Tony Mayer the owner of SaveElk.com, an anti-wolf website, was charged with felony poaching. However the initial felony charged was dismissed because the judge ruled the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IFG) had not properly measured the rack of the bull elk that was allegedly poached. However after the required drying period the IFG measured again and came out with a score of 303 which in Idaho is classified as a trophy. MagicValley.com has the complete story.
Mayer, founder of the anti-wolf website SaveElk .com, was accused of elk poaching in northern Blaine County on Oct. 3, 2009, three days after the close of the bow hunting season. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game started an investigation after Mayer posted photos of the elk on some websites.
