MN: Minn. hunter faces firearms ban over wolf killings

March 8, 2013

From NECN.com

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) An avid hunter faces a lifetime ban on possessing firearms for his role in the killing of two wolves in northeastern Minnesota and an attempt to cover it up.
Vern Hoff must spend a month in a halfway house under the sentence handed down Thursday.
The forest services company owner was convicted last November of a felony count of lying to a federal officer and a misdemeanor for violating the Endangered Species Act. Prosecutors say one of his employees deliberately ran down two wolves in February 2010, and Hoff told him to bury the carcasses before a Forest Service employee arrived at the jobsite.
