DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department says a 19-year-old man has been fined $20,000 for illegally killing and abandoning a bull moose last November.

The agency says Callan Hyatt, of Broomfield, pleaded guilty last week to five misdemeanor wildlife violations: hunting in a careless manner, failing to locate wounded game, failing to dress wildlife, illegal possession of wildlife and hunting without a license.

In addition, Hyatt faces the possibility of being banned from hunting and fishing for up to five years in 47 states.

The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Hearings Examiner will determine any suspensions.
