A Bend man has been accused of illegal hunting activities after an
investigator found mounted animals and wildlife body parts at his home,
state police said today.
Michael Tanner, 38, faces accusations of unlawful possession of mule
deer, elk, antelope, bear and bobcat, all misdemeanors.
Acting on a tip, troopers began an investigation about a month ago and
served a search warrant Sunday night at Tanner's home on Defiance Street.
Troopers reportedly found two mounted animals, a bobcat, a set of antlers
and a bear's skull.
Tanner was cited and ordered to appear in Deschutes County Circuit Court.
