A top official in the Alaska Department of Fish and Game quit his job Thursday after being charged with 12 criminal hunting violations, state officials said. The charges against Division of Wildlife Conservation Director Corey Rossi, a controversial 2010 appointment, are related to an illegal 2008 bear hunt, according to Alaska State Troopers and charges filed Thursday in state court. Troopers say the division director lied on big game hunting reports. He was a licensed assistant big game guide at the time, according to troopers. Rossi, 51, submitted his resignation on Thursday, according an email from Fish and Game Commissioner Cora Campbell.
