Father And Son Used An Airplane To Break The Animal Away From
A plea arrangement has been reached in an Alaska case in which a
man and his son were accused of using an airplane to herd a moose
before shooting the animal.
The incident happened south of Fairbanks. The Anchorage News
Tribune reports that Kevin M. Foster, 46, and his 22-year-old
son Kevin Foster II pleaded guilty to charges of unlawful
possession or transportation of game. They had originally been
charged with same-day airborne hunting, which is prohibited by
Alaska law. It is illegal in Alaska to take most big game on the
same day a hunter flies.
The elder Foster will spend seven days in jail and pay $6,000 in
fines and restitution for the moose. He must forfeit the meat,
hide, and antlers, which reportedly had a spread of 50 inches. He
also must surrender his rifle.
The son will also pay a fine of $2,000, but even more painful,
he must surrender his airplane ... a Cessna 140. Both men lost
hunting privileges, the father for 5 years, the son for one
The two were caught when Troopers obtained a search warrant for
the GPS in the plane. Both had denied herding the moose after it
had been spotted as the son flew his father to a hunting camp. But
the GPS track showed him circling a small area at about 58 knots,
which authorities said was consistent with witness reports and
could not have been for any other purpose than herding a moose.
