Anchorage, Alaska - A Soldotna hunting guide has been found guilty on charges stemming from illegal aerial wolf hunting.
State troopers say 38-year-old David Haeg was found guilty by a jury in McGrath on Friday for nine hunting and trapping violations.
Haeg was charged for violating statutes relating to his big game license. The charges came after an Alaska State Trooper investigation last March showed Haeg had killed a total of nine wolves by shooting them outside the legally permitted aerial wolf hunting area. Some of the wolves were shot from his plane and troopers say Haeg also falsely reported the location of the killings to the Alaska Department of Fish and game.
