January 14, 2014
FAIRBANKS — Two local men were
charged with wanton waste of big game last week after one of their
sons evidently illegally shot a cow moose off Chena Hot Springs Road
in August and the hunting party made no attempt to salvage the
Michael Paul Annunziato, 36, of Fairbanks, and
William Perry Hughes, 44, of Fort Wainwright, were both charged with
wanton waste of big game. Annunziato also was charged with violating
conditions of his hunt permit.
According to a criminal
complaint, Annunziato and Hughes were moose hunting with their sons
on Aug. 16 when two witnesses saw one member of the party shoot a
cow moose accompanied by a calf at 37.5 Mile Chena Hot Springs Road.
The moose ran into the woods and the men left the area without
going after it, the witnesses told troopers. They gave troopers
vehicle information and a description of the hunters.
