PA: Super Bowl poachers face fines, suspensions

Pa. Super Bowl poachers face fines, suspensions

April 14, 2011 

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - April 14, 2011 (WPVI) -- A wildlife conservation officer says two southwestern Pennsylvania men will be fined $3,000 each and lose their hunting licenses for years for poaching two deer so they could serve venison at their Super Bowl party.

Officer Jason Farabaugh says misdemeanor poaching charges were reduced to summary offenses in a plea agreement reached Wednesday before a district judge in Fayette County.

Farabaugh tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that 21-year-old Christopher Layman, of Uniontown, will also have his hunting privileges suspended for eight years, while 35-year-old James Donaldson, of Lemont Furnace, will lose his for five years.

Farabaugh says the men killed two deer out of season on Feb. 5 for their Super Bowl party the next day. Both men confessed to killing the deer and butchering them in a garage.
