Here is another case a lot like the Nevada bobcat case, although it involves animals valued much more highly by the authorities.

Terry man admits wildlife conspiracy. By Clair Johnson. Billings Gazette.

In both cases a major factor was violation of the Lacey Act, a federal law that backs up state laws regarding the illegal transport of wildlife across state boundaries.

    Just came across this story on MSNBC about poaching. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20196691/
    what was particularly interesting to me was the part about how that puke, Sundles was busted using DNA evidence.
    Also I was in Cabela’s sporting goods store recently and see that they carry ammunition made by Sundles. I would encourage everyone to contact that store and let them know about Sundles and ask that they remove his product from there shelves.

    The name of that ammunition is” Buffalo Bore Ammunition”

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
