Man sentenced for hunting over baited field

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) An Evangeline Parish man has been sentenced after pleading guilty to hunting doves over a baited field and helping others do the same.

U.S. District Judge Patrick Hanna sentenced 42-year-old Jody D. Fontenot, of Ville Platte, earlier this week to complete 50 hours of community service and pay a $550 fine. Authorities said Thursday he also ordered Fontenot's hunting rights suspended for a year or until the community service hours are complete.

State wildlife and fisheries agents cited Fontenot in September after receiving a complaint about a baited field in Evangeline Parish. Agents went to the field and found rice that had been distributed throughout the field.

Agents went back to the field a few days later and found it being hunted by three adults, including Fontenot, and six juveniles.
