SD Man Sentenced For Killing Migratory Birds

July 17, 2014, 7:35 AM

SD Man Sentenced For Killing Migratory Birds
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A Vale man has been sentenced in federal court to a year of probation and fined $18,000 for trapping and killing migratory birds.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 68-year-old Glen Schummer pleaded guilty to violating the federal Lacey Act.

Authorities say the conviction stems from an incident that took place in February, when a hawk was found trapped on property owned by Schummer.

An investigation revealed that Schummer had two illegal pole traps on his property to catch great-horned owls and various species of hawks. Johnson says once the birds were trapped, Schummer would either shoot or club the birds to kill them.

Johnson says Schummer told authorities that he had killed at least 10 migratory birds.
