Wildlife officials suspended in hunting license case

A South Carolina wildlife officer was allowed to hunt at Ohio's in-state rate.

XENIA - In November 2006, South Carolina wildlife officer Eric Vaughn got a hunting license on a visit to Ohio. He listed the home address of Allan Wright, a state wildlife officer in Brown County, on the application and paid $19 for a license that would have cost another out-of-stater $125.

Wright, who assisted with the license and checked in the three deer killed by his friend Vaughn, has been charged with a felony.

Wildlife Division officials in 2008, after an internal probe, verbally reprimanded Wright, who is supervised by the Xenia regional office of the Wildlife Division.

That wasn't sufficient punishment, a recent report by Ohio Inspector General Thomas Charles said.
