CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Two teens have been ordered to pay restitution for illegally harvesting six antelope and three sage grouse near Cody.

The Cody Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/29akVOg ) that a 14-year-old boy pleaded guilty to spotlighting big-game animals, wanton destruction, taking game birds out of season and wasting edible portions of a bird and a 17-year old pleaded guilty to spotlighting and wanton destruction of big game animals.

According to the Cody Regional office of Wyoming Game and Fish, the younger boy was sentenced to $12,300 in restitution, but that amount was reduced to $1,200 because of inability to pay. He will work off the restitution with community service.

The 17-year-old was ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution and ordered to work 100 hours of community service.

Both boys lost their hunting privileges.
