Hunter Cited For Killing Bison In Grand Teton Park
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A 48-year-old Idaho hunter is accused of illegally killing a bull bison in Grand Teton National Park.
The Jackson Hole News and Guide (http://bit.ly/vwgvSk ) reports that Daniel Kluth, of Kimberly, Idaho, was cited by park rangers for shooting the bison near Uhl Hill on Sunday.
Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs says Kluth began his hunt in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, where he had a permit to shoot a bison. But he ended up within the park’s boundaries when he tried to circle around to get to the herd.
Skaggs says an outfitting service that was called to help remove the bison reported the animal was shot within the park’s boundaries.
Hunting is prohibited in the park, except for those who have a permit to participate in its elk reduction program.
