Another suspected poacher arrested

Feb. 25, 2011

Another Maine man has been charged with hunting crimes after a six-month investigation by wildlife authorities here and in Pennsylvania.

Lucien H. Clavet, 44, of Monmouth was the fifth Mainer charged in what officials in Pennsylvania called one of the largest wildlife crime sprees uncovered in that state.

The other Mainers charged in Pennsylvania are Everett H. “Lenny” Leonard, 59, and his son Everett Tyler Leonard, 31, Carlton “John” Enos, 19, all of Turner, and a 17-year-old boy from Greene.

Another man Jason Clifford, 27, of Turner received a summons earlier related to the infractions in Maine.

After the investigation by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, the five were charged with more than 250 counts of violating the game and wildlife code and the crimes code.

The group is charged with multiple counts of killing deer at night with a light, killing deer in closed season and killing deer in excess of seasonal bag limits in Armenia Township and surrounding municipalities in Bradford County.

The group is accused of killing dozens of deer unlawfully during the months of October and December, including three large bucks, during the state’s early muzzleloader and regular firearms seasons. The group also has been charged with numerous wildlife crimes in Maine..
