Father, son face poaching charges

A father-son case

Poaching is bad. Involving your kids in poaching seems infinitely worse.

Authorities say an Oregon man did just that. Charles Douglas Cochran, 38, of Eagle Point, Ore., has been arrested and charged with the illegal killing of six trophy black-tailed bucks. Cochran’s 16-year-old son faces similar charges in juvenile court.

A judge set Cochran’s bail at $24,000. My friend Mark Freeman has the details here, in the Medford Mail Tribune.
