SD: Game, Fish and Parks Department says Facebook Tip Leads to Arrest for Hunting Violations in SD

June 26, 2011

Associated Press

PIERRE, S.D. Officials say a Facebook posting spotted in Mississippi led to the conviction of two men for multiple hunting violations in northwest South Dakota.

The Game, Fish and Parks Department said it started an investigation based on a tip from a wildlife conservation officer in Mississippi.

Authorities said they confiscated 10 deer taken illegally in South Dakota. Two Mississippi men pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of big game and violations of a federal wildlife law.

The GF&P says the two paid nearly $20,000 in fines, costs and restitution and received suspended jail sentences.
