RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - An Oacoma man will pay a $5,000 fine for killing a gray wolf in Canada without a license.

The U.S. attorney’s office in South Dakota says 35-year-old Anthony Nogy also must pay $750 in restitution and be on probation for a year.

He pleaded guilty in federal court to violating the U.S. Lacey Act.

Prosecutors say Nogy was moose hunting last September in Ontario when he shot the wolf. He bought a wolf tag the next day and had it flown to his camping site where he attached it to the animal. When he stopped at the U.S. border, Nogy declared a moose he had killed on the trip but didn’t declare the wolf hide.
