SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Wisconsin man charged with unlawfully taking wildlife has been sentenced to one year of probation.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson announced Friday Keith Jorgenson, 37, must also pay a $1,000 fine and $2,500 in restitution.

Prosecutors say Jorgenson shot and killed a mule deer buck in Pennington County in November 2010 and attempted to transport it across state lines.

Jorgenson acknowledged that he and another man shot and killed mule deer bucks in and around Scenic, S.D.
