FAIRBANKS - Three Delta Junction men who illegally killed 10 caribou off the Denali Highway in December have been fined a total of more than $12,000.

They have also been ordered to forfeit their snowmachines and rifles to the state, and had their hunting privileges revoked for three to five years.

The men pleaded guilty in a Glennallen court on May 4 for killing caribou outside the federal subsistence area for which they had permits.

The Alaska Department of Public Safety announced the fine on Friday.

All three men must complete a hunter education course before applying for a hunting license in the future.
