Alpine men convicted of multiple trapping violations

Two Alpine men have been convicted of wildlife violations. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department charged the men with multiple trapping violations.

Harold Buckner pled guilty to “trapping while his trapping privileges were suspended.”
According to the Game and Fish, Buckner’s trapping privileges had been “suspended in July of 2013 for multiple trapping violations.”

Buckner was sentenced to serve five days in jail and his trapping privileges were revoked for six and a half years. He also received a $500 fine and is required to serve a one-year probation sentence.
Richard Permann pled guilty to being “an accessory to Buckner’s offense as well as failing to check his traps and for trapping too close to a public road.”

Permann was sentenced to pay a combined $1,500 in fines for his three violations, as well as a three year probation term with his trapping privileges also being revoked for those three years. In addition, Permann must pay a $365 veterinary bill that was the result of a domestic dog being caught in one of his traps.

“Clearly, these two individuals did not take the Wyoming trapping laws, or their trapping responsibilities, seriously,” said Wyoming Game and Fish Warden, Robert Hipp. “It was especially evident with Buckner who had already lost his trapping privileges back in July.”
