Hunter Charged for Confrontation with Landowner

An Appleton hunter accused of pointing his gun and threatening a landowner over the weekend made his first appearance in court Monday.

Police say the landowner called authorities after he confronted Chuetoua Lor twice about trespassing on his land. Officers say the private land is heavily wooded and adjacent to public land used primarily for hunting.

The confrontation happened Saturday in the Town of Liberty, just outside Hortonville. According to police, Lor, 37, was hunting squirrels and told the landowner he needed to get the animal he shot. When the landowner refused, Lor allegedly pointed his gun at the landowner.

"My understanding on scene that day is that the gun had been leveled toward the landowner, Mr. Lor had allegedly made motions like he was putting a round in the chambers of the gun and he was supposed to have pointed at his leg or lower body," Sgt. Mike Jenks, Outagamie County Sheriff's Department, said.

No shot was fired.

"There was some misunderstanding about who actually owned the land and where this took place,"

"There is some public land but it's ringed -- it's landlocked by private land -- so the only way to get through to the public land is to get access through one of the landowners," Jenks explained.

Lor was arrested at his Appleton home, after police searched the 500-acre woods for five hours Saturday afternoon.

He told the sheriff's department he did have permission from a different, nearby landowner.

He's charged with first-degree recklessly endangerment, a felony, and pointing a firearm at another, which is a misdemeanor. He's being held on $10,000 cash bail, and is due back in court next month for his preliminary hearing.
