Facebook leads Wis. wardens to alleged poachers


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin wardens used a Facebook video to track down two alleged poachers.

Wardens got a tip late last year that a video entitled "Hunting ... Muktown style" was on Facebook. State Department of Natural Resources Warden Rick Reed says the video showed  Adam Frame, 25, of Mukwonago and Dustin Porter, 24, of Sullivan shining and shooting at deer in the town of Mukwonago in 2007. No deer were hit.

Frame pleaded guilty to shining animals and possessing a firearm in August. He was ordered to pay $314 in forfeitures or spend six days in jail.

Porter faces a misdemeanor count of shining animals. His case is still pending in Waukesha County Circuit Court. Online court records did not list an attorney for him.
