U.P. “Wolf” Man Headed To Jury Trial
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The man at the center of Michigan’s wolf hunt controversy is headed for a jury trial.
68-year-old John Koski pleaded not guilty last week to animal cruelty charges in Ontonagon County District Court.
Koski is accused of neglecting two donkeys that were provided by the State of Michigan to prevent wolves from attacking his cattle.
Koski’s Matchwood Township farm accounted for almost as many cattle killed or injured by wolves than all other farms combined since 1996.
If convicted, he will face up to one year in jail, a $2,000 fine, up to 300 hours of community service, or a combination of all three.
