Hawaii hunters sentenced in deer smuggling case

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) A federal judge has sentenced two Hawaii hunters on misdemeanor counts stemming from an investigation into the interisland smuggling of axis deer.

U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Richard Puglisi on Monday sentenced Big Island hunter Daniel Rocha to 100 hours of community service for having sheep in his possession without a permit. Rocha must also pay a $1,000 fine.

Puglisi ordered Maui hunting ranch owner Jeffrey Grundhauser to perform 100 hours of community service for taking an unlicensed hunter to shoot game animals. He must also pay a $15,000 fine and will be on probation for one year.

Prosecutors say their actions introduced axis deer to the Big Island for the first time, and this harms the environment.
