AZ: Game commissioner self-reports shooting of prairie dog after hunting season, gets citation

August 9, 2012

From Therepublic.com

SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. — A state Game and Fish commissioner says he was surprised to receive a citation after he reported the shooting of a prairie dog out of season.
 
Jack Husted tells The Associated Press that he was unaware of a hunting season for Gunnison prairie dogs when he took a friend's 13-year-old son out shooting in Springerville in April and let him kill the animal.

State Game and Fish Department spokesman Jim Paxon called Husted's action exemplary but says it doesn't erase the violation.
