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.
