CA: Five San Francisco residents plead guilty to poaching operation

June 14, 2012

From LakeCoNews.com

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA Five men from San Francisco will pay $12,855 in fines after pleading guilty this month to participating in a poaching operation in Glenn County.
The subjects entered their guilty plea in Glenn County Superior Court.
Department of Fish and Game (DFG) wardens caught Zon Chu, 56; Howard Lai, 43; Kenneth Wong, 29; Jiale Yu, 43; and Chi Wong, 34, illegally hunting wildlife on a private ranch in western Glenn County near the Mendocino National Forest in October 2011.
The men admitted to poaching wildlife on the property, owned by Chu, for more than 10 years. Although the property is owned by Chu, wildlife living on it or crossing through it belong to all Californians.
... wardens Steven Martignoni, Tyson Hulse and Jake Olsen moved in and discovered seven subjects covered in blood and a camp strewn with dead animals including deer, wild hog, rabbits and a western screech owl. A further inspection of the property revealed evidence of a long-standing poaching operation.
