Release Date: 10/19/2010

 

 

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents cited three Pointe Coupee Parish men on Oct. 14 for alleged hunting violations in Pointe Coupee Parish.

Agents cited Richard Plauche, 22, of Blanks, Robert Otremba, 21, of Livonia and Joseph Plauche, 17, of Blanks, for hunting wild quadrupeds during illegal hours and hunting from a moving vehicle.

Agents were working a complaint near Frisco when they heard a gun shot shortly after 10 p.m. After investigating the shot further, agents found a freshly killed rabbit in the bed of a pick up truck. After questioning the three men, the agents determined that the three men allegedly shot the rabbit from the moving pick up truck they were riding in.

Hunting wild quadrupeds during illegal hours and hunting from a moving vehicle each carry fines between $250 and $500, or jail time up to 90 days, or both plus court costs.

Agents participating in the case were Sgt. Cliff Ortis, Senior Agents Allan Marbury and Seth Gauthier.
