A trio of Las Vegas men convicted of state hunting violations in Nevada now face federal charges related to a poaching ring that saw the illegal killings of dozens of deer, antelope, birds and other wildlife across the state, according to state game officials.

Authorities discovered the poaching ring after one of the defendants uploaded a photograph on social media of two deer he shot and killed out of season last June, the Nevada Wildlife Department said in a statement.

Adrian Acevedo-Hernandez, 36; Jose Luis Montufar-Canales, 31; and J. Nemias Reyes Marin, 31 — had been illegally killing and butchering animals across Nevada since early 2013.
