Clover Bay Lodge fined for intentionally feeding bears

The owners of Clover Bay Lodge off Prince of Wales Island recently pleaded guilty to intentionally feeding bears, and were fined $8,000.

According to Alaska Wildlife Troopers, officers investigated the lodge last year and eventually charged the business with multiple wildlife violations.

On Jan. 28th, the lodge owners pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of intentionally feeding bears, and one count of using edible salmon as bait. Other charges were dropped as part of a plea deal.

In addition to the $8,000 fine, the lodge will remain on probation for two years.

Clover Bay Lodge is a floating charter-fishing business anchored off Cholmondeley Sound on the east side of Prince of Wales Island.
