Wildlife violation

• On Wednesday, 49-year-old Juneau man Clarence (Keith) Skaflestad was found guilty at a bench trial on one count of disfiguring or mutilating subsistence taken Dungeness crab. Skaflestad was fined $260 for the violation and the previously seized crab was forfeited to the state. The charge dates back to Aug. 2, when Juneau-based Alaska Wildlife Troopers spoke to Skaflestad as he returned to Auke Bay from a fishing trip. Troopers found that Skaflestad had a large garbage bag full of Dungeness crab that had been mutilated in a way that prevented the determination of size. Troopers also found that Skaflestad had subsistence-taken halibut that had also been mutilated.
