Area couple sentenced in illegal hunting case
Cumberland (WQOW) - An area couple settles charges in an illegal hunting
Gerald Denver of Cumberland was accused of illegally killing a wolf and
five bears, and shining and shooting two does and three bucks out a bedroom
window of his home. His wife, Robin, was convicted of assisting him, and of
hunting bear out of season.
Wednesday, the couple was fined more than $4,600. Gerald is forbidden
from hunting or fishing for 12 years; Robin nine years. Robin is also due in
court in Barron County next month on charges of illegally shooting a trophy
bear hibernating in its den, during deer season.
Wardens say Gerald helped the DNR's case, by keeping a detailed diary of
every animal he shot illegally, including when and how each was killed.
