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 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.
