ALBANY, Ore. - Poachers not only face losing their hunting rights in Oregon: if the animal they kill was trophy quality, they can face fines over $15,000.

Two recent cases show the penalties facing violators since increased fines took effect in Oregon in January 2010.

An Alsea man who pleaded guilty to killing a trophy elk has been ordered to pay over $15,000 in fines, and two Lebanon who admitted illegally killing trophy deer face over $4,000 in fines each.
