La. company, 3 men charged in deer smuggling case

Posted: Updated:
GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Louisiana business and three men have been indicted on federal charges alleging they conspired to import white-tail deer from other states into wildlife enclosures in Pearl River and Lamar counties.

The indictment was made public Wednesday.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1aVxckV) those named in the indictment are Omni Pinnacle LLC, and three individuals - Brian Reine, Ronald Reine and Bruce Swilley.

State and federal laws prohibit importing white-tailed deer into Mississippi to protect the local white-tail deer population and the public from the effects of chronic wasting disease and bovine tuberculosis.

Omni Pinnacle is a disaster debris-management company based in Pearl River, La.

The three men are accused of conspiring to smuggle deer onto wildlife enclosures in Mississippi in 2011 and 2012.
