JACKSON, Wyo. — A Rock Springs man paid $1,290 in fines after authorities say he illegally shot a wolf in western Wyoming and attempted to conceal the animal from a game warden.

Clinton Blake settled the poaching case with a Teton County court last month after he was cited for hunting during a closed season, failure to tag an animal and shooting from a roadway.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department warden Jon Stephens says he intercepted the man driving a pickup truck after he was tipped off about suspected poaching last month.

Stephens says the man admitted to the poaching after Stephens saw the dead wolf in a box in the truck.
