UP Man Charged With Killing 18 Wolves, Bald Eagles and More
An Upper Peninsula man is in some serious trouble after being arrested and charged with 125 wildlife crimes.
Kurt Johnston Duncan, 56 of Chippewa County is accused of killing 18 wolves over an 18-month period and killing three bald eagles. As we all know, both are protected under state and federal laws. Other charges include deer, turkey, bear and bobcat.
According to The Detroit News, he faces up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine for each wolf and eagle; $1,500 in restitution per eagle and $500 per wolf; and up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine each for the other wildlife crimes.
I'm sure like me, you're wondering why in the hell he would do something like this? Apparently, he used the animals for crafts, he would sell some or just throw them away. Here's the real topper, Duncan stated that he was catching the animals because he could and 'likes to do it. ” Are you freaking kidding me? Because he could and likes to do it? I thought this guy was garbage before I heard his reason for doing it, you don't even want to know my feelings now.
I have no problem with hunting, not one bit. It's a whole different story though when you're poaching beautiful wildlife like wolves and bald eagles.
I hope this loser gets the max sentence.
