A 21-year Ketchikan man has been cited for trapping violations.
Alaska State Troopers say Gregory M. Johnson was cited Tuesday for violations occurring last summer.
Troopers took a report July 23 that a Sitka black tail deer was caught in a snare near South Point Higgins Road.
Alaska Wildlife Trooper investigators found nine snares set in two areas, including one that had trapped the deer.
Investigators determined that the snares had been set about two years earlier.
Troopers issued Johnson citations for trapping wolves during a closed season, illegally killing a deer with a snare and failing to salvage the venison.
He is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 21.
