Montana Hutterite Colony Facing Jail Time for Poaching Grizzly Bears
According to an article posted on the Missoulian’s website, the Pondera Hutterite Colony and five of its members are facing two counts of six months of jail time and a $25,000 fine after poaching two grizzly bears. Although one of the members from the colony claim that the bears died from exhaustion after some of the colony members chased them, he said they were too “scared” to report the deaths.
The members unsuccessfully attempted to cremate one of the bears, so they ended up burying both of them after removing, smashing and burning the other bear’s GPS collar.
