Connecticut man pleads no contest to hunting violation

Posted: Monday, September 24, 2001

KENAI (AP) -- A Connecticut man pleaded no contest to charges he took an antlered moose without being in possession of a nonresident hunting license near Trading Bay.

David B. Hanson, 36, of Marlborough, Conn., was fined $500 and sentenced to spend five days in jail. He also has to pay $1,485 restitution and perform 40 hours of community service.

The Kenai District Court judge last week also placed him on two years probation. Hanson was forced to give up the antlers and cape that were seized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Connecticut. His hunting privileges were revoked for one year.
