Vt. charges 2 with illegal bear hunting technique
WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says
two Connecticut men are facing charges they used bait to hunt bear. State
game wardens say they located a large bait pile of apples and acorns in Jay
that was coated with an attractant.
Forty-nine-year-old David Such of Enfield and 49-year-old Charles
LaFountain of Somers were arrested on Sunday in the town of Jay, near the
Canadian border, after wardens began watching the bait pile.
Wardens say Such was arrested when he climbed into a tree stand over the
bait pile. LaFountain was arrested nearby.
A number of other bait piles were found near a camp the two men were
using. If convicted, they could get 60 days in jail and lose their right to
hunt in Vermont for three years. .
