VT breaks up unlicensed hunting preserveTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS | January 05,2013FAIRLEE — The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says wardens have broken up an unlicensed captive hunting facility in Fairlee where people paid up to $6,000 to hunt exotic animals such as buffalo, sika deer, and Texas dall sheep.
The state on Friday charged 51-year-old Steven Hill and 21-year-old Chiaki Ito, both of Fairlee, in the case after two undercover game wardens paid $750 each to hunt a Spanish goat and wild boar.
Hill and Ito are charged with operating the “Hunt the Ridge” captive hunting facility. They are alleged to have charged visitors up to $6,000 to hunt exotic wild animals.
The state says about 200 animals remain on the property.
Hill and Ito are scheduled to appear in court next month in Chelsea.MORE IN This Just In
