Discussion Topic Update: Property Rights Vs. Poaching

Last month, we asked if Colorado rancher Rodney Culverwell, who'd been charged with 80 poaching crimes related to his allegedly killing 16 elk, should be allowed to shoot big-game animals that are damaging his property. Here's the original post if you missed it.

A jury of his peers did not think so, according to the latest, from the Craig Daily Press:
_
After almost nine hours of deliberation, Rodney Culverwell's jury found him guilty of 16 of 80 poaching charges filed against him April 1 by the 14th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

Culverwell was convicted of four of 16 counts of willful destruction of big game, a Class 5 felony; four of 16 counts of illegal possession of wildlife, a misdemeanor; four of 16 counts of hunting without a license, a misdemeanor; four of 16 counts of hunting out of season; and none of 16 counts of waste of edible game meat._
