A Smithfield man who poached a bear can’t hunt in Pennsylvania for the next five years.

Joseph John Swaney, 39, also was ordered to serve a year on probation for his conviction this month.

Swaney was found guilty of unlawful killing and taking of a black bear following a one-day trial Oct. 7.

He was ordered to pay $1,500 in restitution to the game commission in accordance with a provision in state law that places monetary value on wildlife involved in a violation.
