Brewer must hold Husted accountable at AZGFD

TUCSON -- Arizona hunters who know and follow the rules are disturbed Arizona Game & Fish Commissioner Jack Husted violated our state wildlife conservation laws.

Husted admits he was responsible for illegally shooting a Gunnison prairie dog out-of-season in April. Responsible hunters know the seasons and rules before they shoot. A state wildlife commissioner should certainly know the rules he makes. Husted's ignorance is alarming.

Conservation law enforcement officers followed the law and did the right thing by ticketing Husted after his admission of the illegal killing. Then he strangely plead not guilty. Everyone is entitled to fair due process, but his admission makes this situation seem clear.

Gov. Jan Brewer has been silent on this. She appointed Husted, and she should hold him accountable by asking for his resignation now. Brewer can then appoint a new wildlife commissioner who will know and follow the rules he makes.
