Former Meridian man convicted of felony for poaching 2 elk back in 2009.

March 15, 2011

BOISE, Idaho A former Meridian man has been fined more than $5,200 and had his hunting privileges suspended for 10 years for poaching two six-point elk near Idaho City in 2009.

Thirty-seven-year-old Gary Parrott was sentenced earlier this month on a felony for illegally killing the animals during a hunting trip in October with his seven-year-old son before the start of the elk hunting season.

Idaho game wardens were tipped off by witnesses. During a subsequent search of his home, officials seized photos of the elk, antlers and meat matching the DNA from the carcasses.

In a deal with prosecutors, Parrott pleaded guilty to a felony for illegally killing a trophy elk and had other lesser charges dismissed.

Fourth District Judge Patrick Owens also ordered Parrott to serve five years on probation.
