Naples man banned from hunting for 5 years

From staff reports
A Naples, Idaho, man has been banned from hunting for five years after he admitted taking three North Dakota men hunting for mountain lions and putting his tag on an animal they killed. Tod S. Navarro, 50, pleaded guilty to the charge in U.S. District Court. In addition to the five-year hunting ban, Judge Edward Lodge also sentenced Navarro to five years of probation and ordered him to serve 50 hours of community service. According to the plea agreement, Navarro admitted that he and his co-defendants took the North Dakota men hunting, though the men didn’t have Idaho hunting permits or tags. Navarro and two co-defendants put their tags on the mountain lions killed by the North Dakota hunters. The case was investigated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
