Wyoming Game and Fish officials cited two men for setting game traps along Fall Creek Road that caught two pet dogs.

Alpine residents and roommates Harold Buckner, 51, and Richard Permann, 48, were hit with two charges each after an investigation wrapped up last week.

Game and Fish charged Buckner with trapping while his hunting privileges were suspended. He was also cited for attempting to take wildlife from a public roadway.

Permann was charged with attempting to take wildlife from a public roadway and with being an accessory before or after the fact to “trapping under suspension.”

Two of the pooches, Asha, North’s own dog, and Story, a friend’s pup, were caught in snare and foothold traps.

Buckner faces a maximum penalty of a $10,000 fine and up to a year in jail.

If convicted, he could have his hunting privileges suspended up to six additional years. Permann could receive the same if convicted of being an accessory.
