One Of The Largest Wildlife Cases Leads To 18 Arrests

It's being called one of the largest wildlife cases in South Dakota history.

18 people have pleaded guilty and been sentenced in both state and federal court for wildlife violations.

The incidents took place between 2008-2012 in Todd County at a commercial hunting operation called the Rock Creek Ranch.

An extensive investigation found that John and Kathryn Chauncey, along with several of their hunting clients, unlawfully killed and possessed a minimum of 56 deer, hawks, owls, badgers, and turkeys.  The value is estimated at more than $70,000.

Fines for the Chauncey's total more than $100,000. 

The 16 others were sentenced to fines ranging from $500 to more than $26,000 per person.

They've also had their hunting privileges revoked for 45 years.
