2 cited for alleged alligator hunting violations
BATON ROUGE - Two men have been cited for alleged alligator hunting violations.
Agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries' Enforcement Division cited 20-year-old Todd Rivoire Jr., of Youngsville, and 22-year-old Colt Cahanin, of Breaux Bridge on Monday for taking an alligator during a closed season and intentional concealment of illegally taken wildlife.
Agents, responding to an anonymous tip, made contact with the two men at Rivoire's father's home in Breaux Bridge where they found a dead, eight-foot alligator hidden in the woods.
The men face fines of up to $950 and 120 days in jail for each violation.
