A former state senator and unsuccessful candidate for governor in South Dakota has pleaded guilty to a big game violation and lost his hunting privileges for a year.
A former state senator is facing a misdemeanor charge after illegally killing a mountain lion that was caught in a bobcat trap in western South Dakota.
A South Dakota minister says he wants to do for religious freedom what the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. did for civil rights.
"I could have gone to find cell service and called (the Department of) Game and Fish (and Parks) and left the lion there," Howie said. "That would have technically been the appropriate thing to do. It's not what I chose to do. I accepted the consequences for that, and I'm moving on."
"I knew that was not the appropriate choice to make," he said. "It seemed like it at the moment, but in retrospect, what can you say, I had a legitimate tag, I was a legitimate hunter, but it was a game violation."
