GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors in Green Bay have charged a Gillett man with a pair of bear-hunting violations.
The U.S. Attorney's office says John J. Kellogg was the guide on a 2009 hunt in which a bear was killed and illegally tagged. The criminal complaint says the 46-year-old then helped transfer the bear meat to an undercover officer in another state.
A second charge stems from a 2011 hunt. Even though Kellogg's hunting privileges had been revoked, prosecutors say he shot and killed a bear. Authorities say he then made arrangements to have the meat processed and a bear rug made.
A message left with Kellogg's attorney late Wednesday was not immediately returned.
A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 19.
