CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials have donated the meat from four pronghorn that were illegally killed in Natrona County.

Six men from Illinois pleaded no contest to poaching charges Monday for killing the pronghorn Oct. 2. The carcasses were processed for free, and the meat was donated to four local families.

Janet Milek, a spokeswoman for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, tells The Casper Star-Tribune (https://goo.gl/3Y7UWg ) the meat “really helped out a lot of people.”

Willard Pearce at Yellowstone Meat Processing says he ground up the meat to make it easier for the families to use, adding that “It’s important to feed those people and that meat needs to be eaten.”

Whenever Game and Fish handles a poaching case, the department donates the meat to families.
