BEAUMONT, Texas—A Southeast Texas hunting and fishing guide has been sentenced to three years of probation for illegally transporting an alligator carcass.

49-year-old Steve Barclay last August pleaded guilty to transporting wildlife taken in violation of federal law.

Investigators say Barclay in May 2008 witnessed a client shoot and kill three alligators, which are listed as a threatened species. Prosecutors say Barclay knew that Texas law limits hunters to one alligator per hunter per season.
