Collbran ranch owner cited in feral hog case


The owner of a Collbran area ranch has been issued a court summons in connection with the November seizure of 16 feral hogs being transported to his ranch. The Colorado Division of Wildlife issued a summons to Alan L. Baier DBA Little Creek Ranch LLC on Jan. 13.

Baier was summoned to appear in court at the Mesa County Justice Center on Feb. 25 at 8 a.m.

The summons lists the following alleged violations:

Colorado Revised Statute 33-6-109(4)--Unlawful possession of a prohibited species (16 counts) (misdemeanor, $250-$1,000 fine, 10 suspension points)

Additionally, Colorado Revised Statute 33-1-106 gives the Wildlife Commission the authority to establish rules and regulations for the taking, possession and use of wildlife in Colorado. Each conviction under these rules carries a fine of $50 and assessment of five license suspension points. The Division of Wildlife alleges that Baier violated the following regulations:

Wildlife Commission Regulation #006(B)(1)--Transportation of a state-listed detrimental species (16 counts).

Wildlife Commission Regulation #1108(C)(1) and (3)--Failure to maintain fencing to required specifications (2 counts).

Wildlife Commission Regulation #1110(B)--Failure to make records available for inspection when requested (1 count).

Anyone who receives 20 or more license suspension points for violations of Colorado wildlife laws or regulations faces an administrative hearing to determine if that person's hunting or fishing privileges will be suspend for a period of time from one year to life. If hunting and fishing privileges are suspended in Colorado the suspension is honored in 30 other states that participate in the Wildlife Violator Compact.
