AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Warden Service says it has charged four people in connection with deer poaching incidents last April in towns in Franklin and Androscoggin counties.
The service says the four were charged with night hunting and more charges are likely to come.
Game wardens in April responded to a complaint of an injured deer in Chesterville that turned out to be a pregnant doe that had been fatally shot in a "no trespassing" zone. More deer were later found in Leeds, Livermore Falls and Livermore.
The warden service charged 19-year-old Zachary Black of Jay, 19-year-old Kyle Elliott of Fayette and two male juveniles who they did not identify. It was not immediately known Wednesday whether the four have lawyers.
