TX: Texas hunting guide gets probation in gators case
January 15, 2014
BEAUMONT, Texas—A Southeast Texas hunting and fishing guide has
been sentenced to three years of probation for illegally
transporting an alligator carcass.
49-year-old Steve Barclay
last August pleaded guilty to transporting wildlife taken in
violation of federal law.
Investigators say Barclay in May
2008 witnessed a client shoot and kill three alligators, which are
listed as a threatened species. Prosecutors say Barclay knew that
Texas law limits hunters to one alligator per hunter per season.
