4 Wisconsin men plead guilty to illegal mountain lion hunting

by

MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - When Wisconsin hunter Erick Steingraber posted an account about hunting mountain lions online, he gave Montana investigators the trail they needed.

Steingraber is one of four Wisconsin men arrested for illegally hunting mountain lions north of Helena, Montana.

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department first heard of the activities in December 2009. A tip and the internet posting led investigators to Steingraber, Daren Evenson, Jeremy Rosenberg and Eric Hermansen in Wisconsin, where they were arrested.

The men admitted killing 5 mountain lions in violating of the law. Their guilty pleas mean they won't be allowed to hunt, fish or trap in Montana or 36 other states for at least the next two years.
