Morehouse Parish Man Cited for Killing Louisiana Black Bear

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited a Morehouse Parish man on Aug. 1 for the alleged illegal taking of a Louisiana black bear.

Agents cited Dennis Reppon, 53, of Bastrop, for illegally taking a Louisiana black bear during the 2018-19 deer hunting season.

Agents received information that Reppon shot a black bear with a bow and arrow behind his residence in October of 2018. Agents went to Reppon’s residence north of Bastrop and found a black bear head and hide in his freezer. Reppon admitted to taking the bear while deer hunting.

Illegal taking of a Louisiana black bear brings a $900 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail. Reppon may also face civil restitution totaling $10,000 for the replacement value of the illegally taken black bear.
