Poaching Suspects Charged in Yosemite National Park
After an extensive investigation, three individuals face multiple federal charges for poaching within Yosemite National Park. Over the past several years, Southern California residents Chad Gierlich, Chris Gierlich, and Kyle Narasky have allegedly poached multiple trophy-sized deer within the park boundaries. The investigation uncovered a complex, concerted effort by these individuals to illegally hunt within the park and kill trophy size bucks. Search warrants resulted in the seizure of items such as bows and arrows, GIS devices, mounted kills, and several items that lead to the charges being filed.
