Three People Enter Guilty Pleas

Three people from Johnson County enter not guilty pleas in a coyote and fox trafficking case.

Officials say Forest "Tony" Hall, James Auxier and Clustena Hall were among several people arrested across the state last month, accused of illegally buying and selling foxes and coyotes.

The arrests were made after a nearly two year investigation by the department of fish and wildlife.

The three will be back in court in June.

    First off, the law is the law. They broke it so they should pay accordingly. Wasted money on it? This case will be in court for all of about 10 minutes and thats if there isn't a bargain to begin with (likely only a fine anyhow so state makes money). Secondly, you guys miss the point entirely. Transporting animals can have huge impacts on the wildlife in the areas affected. All it takes is for 1 diseaded coyotes to come across state lines and infect our population to have major consequences. Not many people like coyotes but their being gone has major implications on other wildlife as well. I suppose you guys wouldn't mind people bring in some pigs with the swine flu? Same concept.
