NM: NM Game Commission chairman resigns after cougar killing

February 17, 2014

From ABQJournal.com

Scott Bidegain, chairman of the New Mexico Game Commission, has resigned from from the commission, says a news release from the Department of Game and Fish.
 
Bidegain’s resignation letter over the weekend said: “I am honored to have served on the commission and as its chair. Unfortunately, I was present during a hunting incident earlier this month that will result in charges being filed shortly. I believe that it is in the best interest of the Commission and the Department that I step down at this time. I think you should be proud to know that throughout this incident, the officers at the Department acted honorably and professionally.”
 
The Game and Fish news release said department officers filed a misdemeanor charge against Bidegain in Quay County Magistrate Court on Monday, alleging he was was an accessory to the unlawful killing of a cougar.
