DRYDEN - A Louisiana man has been fined $4,000 and banned from hunting for two years after pleading guilty to killing a trophy deer north of Dryden in 2003.
Gary Stroughter, 54, of Baton Rouge, has been fined $2,000 for night hunting, $1,000 for trespassing to hunt and $1,000 for abandoning game. The deer has been forfeited to the Crown.
Court heard that on November 10, 2003, Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) conservation officers received a complaint about a deer being shot about 16 kilometres north of Dryden. The investigation, helped by conservation officers in Louisiana and Mississippi and police in Baton Rouge, led to two U.S. residents being charged.
A second man will go to trial in Dryden on October 19 this year.
Justice of the Peace Robert Michels heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Dryden on July 20, 2004.
The public is encouraged to help protect its natural resources by reporting violations to the local MNR office or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS
