LDWF charge two men for alleged Louisiana Black Bear violations in St. Mary Parish

Two Louisiana men have been cited for alleged Louisiana Black Bear violations in St. Mary Parish on November 12th, 2017. Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries spokesperson Adam Einck says they received a tip of the violation in early April of this year and obtained a search warrant.

“We were able to search his cell phone and what really came in handy is that he had a handheld GPS which tracked his location on November 12th. We were able to find the kill site and where they dumped the bear at an open field.”

The bear was found in an open field six miles off Highway 83 near Glencoe, and Einck says the Department had no idea the bear was shot and killed.

“This bear wasn’t tagged or radio collared. It wasn’t a part of our tracking bear program. Using the tacking location and the GPS, we come across the skeleton of the remains of a black bear.”

LDWF enforcement agents charged Cody J. Charpentier, 31, of Glencoe, for taking a black bear during a closed season and his accomplice, Bailey Rogers, 21, of Youngsville, was charged for illegal possession. Both men were charged with intentional concealment of wildlife. Einck asks hunters to remain vigilant during hunting season.

“We do come across some cases where feral hogs can look similar to black bears, especially from a long ways away. So we ask ever hunter, please make sure you know exactly what you’re shooting at.”
