(S.D.)-Man Sentenced Federally For Hunting Violations
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man accused of hunting
violations has been ordered in federal court to pay more than
$13,000 in restitution and fines.
Ronald Mittleider (MIHT'-ly-dur), of Herreid, pleaded guilty to
allowing hunters at his lodge to shoot more pheasants than legally
allowed. He also admitted shooting and killing a hawk and an owl.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Mittleider will be on
unsupervised federal probation for a year. He also has been
punished for hunting violations in state court, where he was fined
$500 and ordered to pay the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks
department $20,000 in civil damages.
