Three Men Sentenced For Elk Poaching

Three men are sentenced for killing two young, Kentucky born elk last fall in Perry County for their antlers.

"They cut the heads off and left the bodies, no meat was utilized. The reason they said they took the antlers was to make knife handles out of," said Lt. Frank Campbell with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.

Alan Combs, Anthony Fugate and Garrett Campbell all lost their hunting privileges for two to three years, as well as two years probation and more than $24,000 in fines split between the three men.

We will have more on these and other stories coming up tonight on Mountain News at Six.
