Charges filed against three men in cougar killing case


MANISTIQUE (AP) -- Prosecutors are expected to charge
three men who state wildlife officials say illegally killed a cougar in
Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Michigan
Department of Natural Resources Lt. Skip Hagy tells The Bay City
Times that the Schoolcraft County prosecutor's office is bringing
charges. Hagy says the Bay County men are to be arraigned March 5 in
Schoolcraft County District Court.

Names of the men weren't immediately released.

Cougars
are also known as mountain lions and are classified in Michigan as an
endangered species. Hagy didn't specify what charges the men would face.
The penalty for illegally killing one in Michigan is up to 90 days in
jail and restitution up to $2,500.

The DNR earlier said the cougar was killed in December at a hunting camp in northeast Schoolcraft County
