Two Pennsylvania men found guilty of bird poisonings
A Beaver County, Pa, farm operator and one of his employees were found guilty in federal court Jan. 25 on three counts related to the unlawful killing of protected migratory birds.
Robert Yost, 52, of New Castle, and Jacob Reese, 27, of Enon Valley, both in Lawrence County, were convicted of poisoning 17 Canada geese, 10 red-winged blackbirds and a mallard duck with corn coated with carbofuran, a registered restricted-use pesticide, in June 2020. The verdict came 15 months after their October 2022 trial.
