Poachers face felony charges in Oregon after getting caught in possession of five white sturgeon that they failed to release, as required by law. Instead, four were tied to a dock they moored their boat to and another, a 7-footer, was discovered in their boat.

Earlier this month, fishermen along the banks of Scappoose Bay witnessed people fishing from a boat had caught but not released a white sturgeon and reported them to the Oregon State Police and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife troopers, according to the ODFW.

After two days of monitoring the area, troopers Scott Bernardi and Justin Morgan approached the men where they were moored at the dock.

The poachers claimed they had not caught any fish, but the troopers noticed two lines extending from the dock into the water. Upon pulling the lines up, they found four live white sturgeon. When inspecting the boat, the troopers discovered the 7-foot white sturgeon, pictured below lying on the dock.

>>>Utah hunting guide Wade Lemon faces five years in state prison for the death of a Carbon County bear killed during a guided hunt on May 18, 2018.

But Lemon, a well-known guide didn't pull the trigger — Donald Trump Jr. did, according to the Utah Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Trump Jr. is not named in a recent filing against Lemon, but the DNR confirmed his identity as the person named in the felony complaint as Lemon's "client" on the hunt. Prosecutors have indicated there was no evidence showing Trump Jr. would have known about the alleged baiting that went on during the hunt.
