Dog poisoner sentenced – he meant to kill wolves

A former Salmon, Idaho who tried to kill threatened gray wolves by setting out poisoned meatballs but instead poisoned three domestic dogs, a coyote, a fox and several magpies, was sentenced today to six days in jail and two years of probation.

Timothy B. Sundles, 48, was sentenced by Chief U.S. Magistrate Judge Mikel H. Williams, who also imposed a $1,510 fine and ordered that Sundles be banned from federal or public lands for two years. He also must pay veterinary bills of $128.90 for treatment of three dogs who ate the poisoned meatballs. Sundles, who now lives in Montana, earlier signed a plea agreement admitting to setting out the poisoned meatballs in 2004 in the Salmon National Forest near North Fork.
