Illegal Hunting Continues In Mobile County

Illegal Hunting Continues In Mobile County

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

Dashcam video captures these guys hunting illegally. It's a problem seen all across Mobile County right now.

"It wasn't even hunting season, it wasn't his property and he had legal right to be there," says Chad Robbins with the Mobile County Sheriff's Office.

26-year-old Kenneth Tingle was arrested and charged with trespassing and hunting without a license.

Photos on social media led deputies to Tingle after he was seen posing with the deer.

"He admitted to shooting and actually taking 2 bucks from the property and actually dragging them almost 3/4 of a mile into a wooded area," said Robbins.

Donnie Brown owns property in West Mobile and has noticed a problem in recent months.

"People are poaching deer in the night and in the day time," said Brown.

He says on Thursday someone shot and killed a deer on his property.

"It was shot in the throat and the deer is still laying there," said Brown.

The illegal activity is being seen near homes and major highways, too.

"That right there is dangerous alone so if you're making shots with a high powered rifle that means anyone, or anything that is out there, can be killed. We're taking a proactive stance against this. We're going to do everything in our power to try and stop this. It's an ongoing problem and we're not going to quit," said Robbins.

If you notice any illegal hunting you're asked to call the sheriff's office right away.
