Conviction for Illegal Taking of Wildlife

Harpers Ferry National Historical Park

National Park News

Rangers received a report of illegal hunting on Loudoun Heights in the West Virginia section of the park last December 18th and found two recently-shot deer at that location. Two suspects were seen fleeing on an ATV. One of the rangers pursued them on foot up a fire road, then followed the ATV’s tire tracks in the snow until catching up with the pair. The two men, who had a rifle in their possession, each admitted to shooting one of the deer. On April 11th, they both pled guilty to poaching and weapons violations in federal district court in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Each was fined $500 and required to pay the park $200 in restitution. The rifle was confiscated.
