[thumbnail icon url=”green-bay-man-pleads-guilty-to-wolf-poaching” filename=”news” year=”2009″ month=”12″ day=”01″] The Green Bay Press Gazette is reporting that a Wisconsin man hasĀ admitted to killing a Michigan wolf.

Wisconsin resident, Stephen Popp Jr., pled guilty on November 30, to killing a wolf in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Michigan wolves are protected under federal law. He was also charged with hunting without a license.

Both charges are misdemeanors and could carry a penalty of up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

The wolf was poached on November 17 near the the Iron River. Officers from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources found the body, and enough evidence to led them to a nearby camp where they found Popp Jr.
