10 defendants sentenced for illegal hunting activities

BRYSON CITY, N.C. -

U.S. District Courts sentenced eight North Carolina men this week for illegally hunting black bears and other wildlife in western parts of the state and Georgia.

A multi-agency initiative called "Operation Something Bruin" led to the sentencing after four-years working undercover.

State and federal wildlife officials found nearly one-thousand violations, including the illegal poaching of bears and other wildlife, and hunting on national forest lands without permits.
