MORE CHARGES FILED IN POACHING CASE

Friday, January 09, 203

Four hunters charged with poaching deer at a closed Edison landfill over the weekend also face civil penalties for hunting without the proper state permits and killing more deer than allowed, state officials said yesterday.

Officers from the state Division of Fish and Wildlife issued three summonses each to Matthew Beauregard, 35, of Monroe; Paul Callahan, 47, of Cape May Court House; Michael Callahan, 45, of Denville; and Thomas Lagattuta, 37, of Jamesburg. They shot nine deer Saturday at the closed ILR landfill, said Elaine Makatura, spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Authorities said the four men rode Lagattuta's 14-foot boat along the Raritan River, tied up on the edge of the landfill and shot five does and four bucks. Several of the deer were found in the boat, Makatura said.

All the men had hunting licenses but had failed to register their shotguns for hunting, failed to have permits for hunting in that section of the state, and failed to obtain the forms for deer kill, Makatura said.

Fish and Wildlife officers also issued a summons to a man who killed four does, two more than permitted at one time, and to a man for shooting two bucks, one more than permitted, said Makatura. She declined identify those individuals.
