Two Wasilla men stand accused of illegally shooting three Prince William Sound black bears, a crime Alaska State Troopers say was recorded by a video camera at their den.
Court records show Andrew Renner, 41, and Owen Renner, 18, are both charged with three counts each of illegally taking a bear cub or female bear and unlawfully transporting game. Andrew Renner faces additional counts of tampering with physical evidence, unsworn falsification and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to a Wednesday statement from troopers, the Renners were indicted Monday. The April 14 encounter during which the sow and its two cubs were poached took place on Esther Island.
