David S. Wallace, 19, of Culdesac, was sentenced Tuesday for killing a
5-by-6 bull elk out of season near Reubens, Idaho, and wasting the meat, both misdemeanors.

Wallace shot the elk Sept. 25 for food, dragged the carcass to a low spot so it would not be seen by motorists and later returned to find the meat spoiled. He cut off the animal’s head and stored it in a shed behind his trailer in downtown Culdesac.

Magistrate Gregory K. Kalbfleisch sentenced Wallace to 180 days in jail with
170 days suspended, imposed $2,480 in penalties, fines, fees and restitution, suspended Wallace’s hunting and fishing privileges for three years and placed him on probation for up to two years.
