Wolf Song of Alaska News
Hunter Sentenced in Killing of Wolf Thought to be 'Romeo'

The Associated Press / Anchorage Daily News / January 5, 2011


JUNEAU -- A Pennsylvania man who hunted with an Alaska guide during a series of big-game violations that included shooting a black wolf has avoided jail time with a guilty plea.

The Juneau Empire reports that 46-year-old Jeffrey Peacock of Lebanon, Pa., appeared by telephone Tuesday in Juneau District Court.

Peacock pleaded guilty to baiting a bear without a permit, unlawful possession of game and unsworn falsification in the shooting of the black wolf, all misdemeanors.

Six-month jail terms for each of the three convictions were suspended, but Peacock must pay a $2,000 fine, $600 restitution and serve three years on probation.

The wolf killed is believed to be the approachable "Romeo," beloved for years by many residents of Juneau.
