Sunset man accused of killing alligator out of season
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement division agents have cited a 49-year-old Sunset man for allegedly killing an alligator during a closed season.
The department said in a news release, agents cited Kenneth Arceneaux for taking or possessing an alligator during a closed season and intentional concealment of illegally taken wildlife.
The agency says agents responded to an anonymous complaint against Arceneaux. Agents showed up at Arceneaux's home on June 10 and learned that Arceneaux had harvested a six foot alligator in Cameron Parish earlier that morning. Agents seized the meat.
The alligator season for Cameron Parish doesn't open until the first Wednesday in September.
