Craig hunter gets probation, fine in poaching case

CRAIG — A hunter who wildlife officials say harvested trophy parts of three mule deer bucks and two pronghorn bucks while abandoning much of the meat has been fined $4,000.

The Colorado Division of Wildilfe announced today that a Moffat County District Court judge also sentenced 63-year-old Floyd Gutierrez of Craig to four years of supervised probation, which could be reduced to one year if he complies with court requirements.

He must donate $5,000 to a program that offers rewards to help catch poachers. He also could lose his hunting privileges permanently pending a review by a Division of Wildlife hearing examiner.

Gutierrez had pleaded no contest to willful destruction of wildlife.

The case was investigated after a wildlife official received a tip in November 2008.
