Hunters Who Illegally Killed Mountain Lion Are Caught After Bragging On Social Media
Three hunters who illegally slaughtered a mountain lion in Yellowstone National Park last year have been convicted.
Austin Peterson, 20, Trey Juhnke, 20, and Corbin Simmons, 19, left a trail of evidence on social media which allowed authorities to track them down.
Bragging about their illegal kill, the trio uploaded celebratory photographs on their social media accounts – all of which were seen by other hunters who alerted wardens at the park.
