As far as poaching is concerned, it’s three strikes and a felony in Wyoming. A 19-year-old man has become the first person charged under a new state law that makes repeat poaching a felony.
Colton Lapp of Worland, Wyo., twice convicted of poaching, faces felony charges after being arrested for poaching four mule deer. If convicted, he could face more than 12 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
