Judge Throws Book at Alaska Sheep Poacher

In one of last week's "Discussion Topics," regarding a Wyoming elk poaching sting operation, most of you said that the punishments given to motorists shooting at a planted bull elk decoy were insufficient. I agree, and would submit that this is a little more like it—from the Anchorage Daily News:

An Anchorage taxidermist convicted of illegally killing two Dall sheep last winter in a popular sheep-viewing area along the Seward Highway was socked Friday with six months in jail, $25,000 in fines, and probation restrictions designed to keep him off the Internet and away from hunting. For the next 10 years . . . he's not allowed to practice taxidermy or own guns.
