Ruston chamber president cited for hunting violation

RUSTON, La. The Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce president is in trouble with Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries for methods allegedly chosen to defend his back yard and garden.

Scott Terry has been cited for shooting seven squirrels during closed squirrel-hunting season and allegedly discarding them outside his residence.

Wildlife and Fisheries officials say during questioning, Terry allegedly admitted to shooting the squirrels with a .22 caliber pellet pistol because they had become a nuisance in his garden and yard.

The penalties for shooting squirrels during a closed season is a fine of between 250 and five-hundred dollars, or jail time up to 90 days or both plus court costs.
