Poaching trial for Crow tribal member begins in Sheridan
The trial for a Crow tribal member charged with poaching begins Wednesday in Sheridan.
Clayvin Herrera is charged with killing antlered game. His jury trial will take place in Sheridan County Circuit Court.
Herrera claims an 1868 treaty with the U.S. government allows Crow to hunt on their native lands. As a result of the treaty, Crow officials say hunting by Crow members on some Wyoming public land is legal, and can’t be considered poaching.
