Guide pleads guilty to illegal moose hunt

DENALI NATIONAL PARK, Alaska -- A commercial guide has been fined for leading an illegal moose hunt inside Denali National Park.

The National Park Service says Annette M. Keith of Healy pleaded guilty to three charges. Under a plea agreement, she was fined $14,000 and placed on three years' probation. Keith also lost her guiding privileges for three years.

Keith was co-owner of Castle Rock Outfitters. She and her brother-in-law were guiding a client from Florida on a moose hunt when a Denali ranger spotted the three more than two miles inside the park boundary. The hunters had driven ATVs to within a quarter mile of a large congregation of moose and were targeting a 60-inch bull.

A ranger and trooper in a helicopter landed next to the hunting party before the moose was shot.
