Poachers to pay over $30,000 in fines for mule deer harvest

Laramie, WY – A tip to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Stop Poaching Hotline helped wildlife investigators apprehend a Chugwater man on multiple counts of taking big game animals without licenses.

Cheyenne Game Warden David Ellsworth said 47-year-old John Clark had posted photos of the animals he shot, including a photo of a buck antelope that he said was his “first antelope with a bow.”

Clark, who lived in Rock River at the time, never purchased a hunting license for at least six animals that he killed between 2010 and 2013. A search warrant for Clark’s residence lead to the discovery of antlers and horns from the poached animals, a pelt from a swift fox, and talons from great horned owls and golden eagles.

Albany Circuit Court Judge Honorable Robert A. Castor ordered Clark to pay $30,240 in fines and suspended his hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for 36 years.
