Re: Arizona GFD Seeking Help on Poaching of 2 Bighorn Sheep

I became aware of this unfortunate incident a couple of days prior to the public news articles telling of it. I was certainly disgusted enough at hearing about it and then came the Associated Press story telling about it and I hit the roof. While the article posted here appropriately calls the offenders what they are, POACHERS, the widely circulated Associated Press article repeatedly referred to the offenders as HUNTERS. I am sure the article was written by some ignorant fool that has absolutely no idea of what hunting is or about the North American Model for Game Management. Hopefully, these idiots will be caught and exposed for what they are, common criminals. I pray they are sentenced to prison time and pay hefty fines. Meanwhile, the ignorance of the members of the press needs to be changed to reflect the facts about the difference between hunters and criminals.
