Letter: Punish the poachers

I am writing in reference to the article that appeared July 13 “Roan Plateau elk poacher to pay $5,000.”

One why are Bingham and Scheer still working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service? They both should have been canned on the spot. They also should have paid the $5,000 to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, as well as Fitsimmons, since the others were accomplices.

Being a “public servant” the public should know what their punishment is/was.

There shouldn’t be any discussion about any of them not receiving a five-year suspension on their hunting and fishing licenses. Just do it.

All four of you “gentlemen” make me sick. Too bad you couldn’t have spent some jail time also.

Good job on the investigation CPW, and a reminder to the public to always call in the poachers.
