Discussion Topic: Should Poachers Get Mandatory Jail Time?

From an Associated Press article in South Dakota's Aberdeen News:

_Hunters who poach big-game animals in South Dakota must be sent to jail for at least three days. That's the law.

But it won't be the law much longer.

A bill passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Mike Rounds repeals the mandatory jail sentence for those who shoot deer out of season, without a license or at night.

Officials say the penalty is counterproductive and sometimes unfair.

Some prosecutors don't agree with the minimum three-day jail requirement and won't charge people with big-game violations because even people who inadvertently shoot a buck while aiming for a doe must be locked up._

Is this the right decision?
