Criminal complaints against Kyle Narasky and brothers Chad and Chris Gierlich were signed on Wednesday, August 5th, charging them with multiple counts of poaching, violations of the Lacey Act, aiding and abetting the commission of a crime, and many Title 36 CFR violations. The signing of these complaints marked the culmination of a year-long investigation which entailed the issuance of multiple search warrants and close cooperation between wardens from the California Department of Fish and Game, rangers from the Tuolumne Meadows Subdistrict and special agents from across the Pacific West Region. Over the past four years, the Gierlichs and Narasky have poached multiple trophy-sized deer from inside Yosemite National Park. State charges are also pending.

Poaching is absolutely an unacceptable method for cooking venison.

The cure for a fallacious argument is a better argument, not the suppression of ideas.

What about braising?

Poaching Suspects Charged in Yosemite National Park
Date: August 25, 2009

After an extensive investigation, three individuals face multiple federal charges for poaching within Yosemite National Park. Over the past several years, Southern California residents Chad Gierlich, Chris Gierlich, and Kyle Narasky have allegedly poached multiple trophy-sized deer within the park boundaries. The investigation uncovered a complex, concerted effort by these individuals to illegally hunt within the park and kill trophy size bucks. Search warrants resulted in the seizure of items such as bows and arrows, GIS devices, mounted kills, and several items that lead to the charges being filed.

This interagency investigation was conducted by Yosemite National Park Rangers, Pacific West Region Special Agents, and California Department of Fish and Game Wardens. Multiple federal charges regarding the illegal hunting have been filed which fall under the Lacey Act and Title 36 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations). In addition to poaching within the park, state charges have been filed alleging that illegal hunting activity occurred on land under the jurisdiction of the California Department of Fish and Game.

“This is the most egregious case of illegal hunting we have uncovered here in Yosemite National Park. Wildlife in Yosemite is as important as Half Dome or Yosemite Falls. We take this activity very seriously and will continue to aggressively investigate and prosecute anybody found to be partaking in this activity. This is a very serious offense and we want to send a clear message that we will not tolerate illegal hunting in Yosemite National Park,” stated Yosemite Chief Ranger Steve Shackelton.

The defendants are scheduled to appear in Federal Court in the next few weeks.
