RED LAKE INDIAN RESERVATION — A Brainerd, Minnesota man faces federal charges of wildlife trafficking and trespassing on Indian lands in connection to the killing of a 700-pound bear on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.
Authorities say on Sept. 1, Brett Stimac used a compound bow to shoot and kill the large American black bear near the reservation’s garbage dump. Stimac is not a member of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians, federal authorities noted.
He later posed for photographs with the bear’s carcass and shared the pictures on Facebook, police said.
