CO: Mack hunting outfitter pleads guilty

July 30, 2014

From KJCT8.com

Nicholaus J. Rodgers pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one count of conspiring to violate the Lacey Act. Christopher W. Loncarich was scheduled to be in court on Wednesday, but his plea hearing was rescheduled for August 15.
 
The Lacey Act is a federal law that makes it illegal to knowingly transport or sell in interstate commerce any wildlife that has been taken or possessed in violation of state laws or regulations.
 
In January, officials with the Justice Department filed a 17-count indictment against Loncarich and Rodgers based on the pair's practice of illegally capturing and maiming mountain lions and bobcats as part of a scheme to make hunting the cats easier for their clients between 2007-2010.
 
In order to keep the cats in the correct areas, Mr. Loncarich and other guides would allegedly shoot them in the paw or legs, or even attach leghold traps to them.
 
To date, four assistant guides have pleaded guilty to offenses arising from the conspiracy.
