"Romeo" Poachers Sentenced

Jeffery Peacock was sentenced this week for the poaching of Romeo the wolf and related crimes. Perhaps Alaska's most famous wolf, Romeo, was unusually outgoing and appeared at Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau Alaska for the last six years. Romeo attracted international attention and was a visible icon to locals and the media at large . According to the Juneau Empire , Mr. Peacock received a sentence of six months, all suspended; a $5,000 fine with $3,000 suspended; and three years probation and the shooter, Park Meyers, received 330 days (all suspended), $12,500 in fines ($7,500 suspended), restitution of $1,100, forfeiture of three rifles and suspension of hunting privileges during his probation.

Some are outraged at the poaching and the lack of a stronger sentence according to an op-ed piece also at the Juneau Empire .

It’s because these cases aren’t about hunting, and they really aren’t about the wolf. They are about the wanton waste of a valuable public resource that belonged to all Alaskans. The District Attorney missed this. In his presentation at the sentencing of Park Myers, Doug Gardiner, then the D.A., said that Myers’ actions were wrong because they deprived hunters of a “fair chase.” That characterization reflects a troubling disregard for the hundreds of thousands of Alaskans who don’t have a hunting license. For us, proximity to resources like the black wolf defines our life in Alaska.

Defense Attorney Argues: No Antlers, No Felony

Several states, such as Montana and Colorado have poaching laws that elevate a crime to felony status if the poached animal is considered a trophy based on measurements of the poached animals antlers. Jimmie Roberts is accused of poaching a trophy class bull in Montana, along with several other related poaching charges, however the state could not produce the trophy antlers during Mr. Roberts' ongoing trial.

According to the Billings Gazette , Mr. Roberts' defense attorney has asked that the felony charge be dismissed because they are not able to independently measure the antlers.

In his motion and at the hearing Friday Roberts’ attorney, Jeff Michael, argued that the felony accusation should be dismissed because the antlers from the bull elk were inadvertently sold to a Billings recycling company before trial. As a result, Michael said, his client is unable to independently determine through a defense expert whether the antlers meet the criteria of a trophy animal under state law.

James Adam Jenkins, 39, was booked into the Tulsa Jail on three counts of unfair or deceptive trade practice in violation of the Oklahoma Consumer Protection Act. He was released on $9,000 bond later Tuesday, jail records show. Attorney General Scott Pruitt said in a statement that other complaints against Jenkins are being investigated and that additional felony charges are possible.
