What an idiot. I personally think that if you commit a crime in the park of that magnitude you should loose your hunting and fishing liscense with the state as well.

Oh and I believe the man that got the bear killed at Laural Falls recreived a misdimenor for animal harrassment or something like that. Fine his butt heavy. Without examples being made this is going to continue. I love hunting and I love fishing but, that is just ignorance. I see people feeding animals in the park all the time and getting with in inchs of deer trying to either take a picture or touch them. If a fisherman gets caught fishing with corn he's fined acouple hundred bucks (never had to worry about that one so I'm not sure). If your bitten by a bear because your an idiot you get a $50 fine and a slap on the wrist. Should they kill all the yellow jackets and hornet in the park because they sting someone? What about copper heads and rattle snakes? They are posions. I don't see people with a camera inches from a rattle snake or poked into a honets nest.

I am kinda surprised that someone who poached elk in a national park even bothered to get a hunting license. I guess he liked to hunt some legal like and poach on the side.

NC is now joining the Wildlife Violator Compact. This is an agreement among states to suspend hunting and fishing rights in all member states if a violator loses them in one member state. Right now there are 34 member states with 7 more pending (NC is pending). Too bad they aren't already members!

I am glad they threw the book at the Poacher. But, destroying the weapon doesn't make sense to me. I'd much rather they confiscate and sell it and use the money to benefit the elk heard.
