Accused poacher pleads not guilty

by

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WSAU) – A Gillett hunter has pled not guilty to federal charges he poached bear and lied to investigators about it.

John Kellogg’s attorney also filed a speedy trial demand during Monday’s court hearing. Kellogg’s case is set for trial on January 10th.

Kellogg is accused of selling illegal bear tags to two undercover agents, then guiding them on bear hunts in 2009 and again in September. He also helped them process illegally killed bear for their meat and hide.

And prosecutors say Kellogg lied to investigators during an interview last month, when he denied that he had illegally killed a bear near Merrill this fall.

Kellogg faces up to five years in prison on each charge. If he is convicted, the feds could seize his truck, weapons, hunting dogs and other equipment.
