Man fined in death of deer 

A Spencer resident won`t be hunting this season – or the next two, for that matter – after being convicted of multiple state wildlife violations, according to the Ohio Division of Wildlife.

Brian Zoldock, 40, was found guilty Friday of four misdemeanor counts of illegally killing a deer. Zoldock and his two young sons were driving when he shot a deer from his truck with a 30-30 rifle, according to court paperwork. The deer was in a private field.

Officials say Zoldock fled but returned later to claim his prize. Two state wildlife officers were waiting for him.

Oberlin Municipal Court Judge Thomas A. Januzzi ordered Zoldock to pay $1,575 in fines, restitution and court costs and revoked his hunting license for three years.

The rifle used to poach the deer was confiscated.

A 60-day jail sentence was suspended pending no further violations in the next three years.
