Tyler Sluyter successfully hunted a bighorn sheep two years ago and was just now found guilty of wasting its meat.
On Sept. 8th in Wyoming, a judge fined Sluyter $1,040 and revoked his hunting permit for two years. He was also given six months of unsupervised probation and a 90-day suspended jail sentence.
Sluyter obtained a tag and legally harvested the sheep. He removed its head for a trophy. However, he stated that the much of the animal’s carcass was too bloodshot to harvest.
Another hunter ended up finding the carcass and he reported it to Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
