Arrested for Illegal Hunt After Posting Facebook PicturesBy Rocky Thompson on November 15th, 2010
A young man in Minnesota was hit with $2,000 in fines and will lose a bunch of hunting gear for poaching. He probably would have gotten away with it if he’d been able to resist posting all his pictures on Facebook. He apparently didn’t hear any of the stories about people who’ve been fired after blasting their boss on Facebook, and he certainly didn’t take Pres. Obama’s advice to be careful what you post online.
He later posted a photo of him and two buddies posing with 12 Canada geese they shot.
“In the caption, he wrote it was a ‘three-man limit of geese,’ ” Muyres said. But the daily bag limit is three geese apiece, meaning they were three over their limit.
Rough on the math there, buddy. Someone who could add/multiply noticed the discrepancy and called at poaching tip line to turn him in.
