TWO MEN ARRESTED FOR POACHING

28 December 2003

A ranger at Natchez Trace Parkway near Nashville, Tenn., stopped a station wagon on New Year's Day [?] after he noticed a bullet hole in the driver's door and fresh blood on the bumper.

Seated behind the two occupants was a dead doe, which might have been OK in an HOV-3 lane but was definitely out of place in a national park.

With little prompting, the two men admitted to poaching. The passenger said he shot the deer from the vehicle, and as he jumped out he threw the rifle

with a round chambered on the front seat. The gun went off, almost striking the driver and putting a neat hole in the door.

The men were arrested and fined. The deer went to charity.
