Haines men cited for brown bear killings

By KTVA CBS 11 News 8:09 AM August 27, 2014
HAINES –

Four brown bears were killed in two separate incidents in Haines earlier this month, according to Alaska State Troopers.

In an online dispatch posted Tuesday, troopers said two Haines residents were cited for the deaths.

In the first incident, which took place Aug. 9, troopers said 48-year-old Kevin Shove shot and killed a male brown bear “in defense of life and property.” Shove buried the bruin on his property with a backhoe, AST said, and was cited a week later for failing to report the incident or surrender the bear to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

The day after Shove reportedly shot the bear on his property, troopers said 23-year-old Dalton Huston saw a sow and two cubs near his home and chased them away. Huston followed the three animals and killed them all, AST said.

The killings were reported to troopers in Juneau a week later. According to AST dispatch, Huston faces three counts each of unlawfully possessing game and taking brown bears during a closed season.
