Hunting provider fined $1,500 for bear-baiting

OAKLAND — A Garrett County hunting provider who pleaded guilty in district court Thursday to a black bear violation was fined $500 and also ordered to pay $1,000 in restitution to the Wildlife Conservation Enforcement Fund, according to Sgt. Art Windemuth of the Maryland Natural Resources Police.

Lee C. Brenneman, 64, Accident, had been charged on the opening day of bear season in October with using corn and molasses to attract bears to his property near Bittinger.

A utility vehicle, seized at the time by Cpl. Walter May, was returned to Brenneman by Judge Leonard J. Eiswert.

Brenneman’s client that day, Donald D. Gutermuth, 53, Baldwin, had been charged with hunting bears with the aid of bait. Gutermuth chose to pay a fine of $500 rather than stand trial.

Other hunters were charged on the opening day of bear season.
