TX - Hunter arrested for trespassing

January 15, 2007 - Eagle Staff Report

A Louisiana man competing in an Iola raccoon hunting competition was arrested Saturday on misdemeanor criminal trespassing charges after authorities said he went onto property alongside Texas 6 near the Navasota River in Brazos County.

The property owner called police after spotting tracks that led from the entrance to his land - where a chain securing the gate had been cut - to the rear. After following the tracks, the owner found the man standing near a truck that had a Louisiana license plate.

The 48-year-old hunter told police his "coon dog" had gotten hung on a neighbor's fence and he was trying to retrieve the animal. He further explained he was a member of the Lone Star 5000 coon hunting association and was competing in a contest Saturday in Iola.

He was released from the Brazos County Jail early Sunday on $3,000 bail.
