RAPID CITY, S.D. - A Mitchell resident entered a guilty plea and paid a $120 fine in a Pennington County court Tuesday on a misdemeanor charge of illegally using dogs to hunt a mountain lion.


Defendant Wade Musick was not present at the hearing but was represented by attorney Matthew Kinney, who submitted his client’s guilty plea before Magistrate Judge Scott Bogue.

“Wade decided he didn’t want to fight the case anymore and have the expense of going to trial,” Kinney said.
