    They killed a big black bear on private property near the local dump. Claimed the animal was killed in another location. Fines were $2,500 each. Banned from hunting for 20 years and 15 years.

    "The men returned to Indiana, not knowing that CPW was working with Indiana authorities, who served warrants and found incriminating evidence at both mens' homes. Ultimately, the men agreed to plead guilty to willful destruction of wildlife, a class-five felony.

    They also pleaded guilty of illegal possession of wildlife, hunting on private property without permission, and waste of edible wildlife, all misdemeanors.

    The Roes agreed to pay $2,500 each to the CWP, with the money earmarked for the states's wildlife violation tip hotline."
