Charges in plot to kill goats of Vt. game warden

December 22, 2011

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) - Vermont prosecutors say a Hartland man with a grudge against a game warden paid another to kill the warden's pet goats.

Court documents say that on Oct. 30, Nick Ashline, 33, offered to pay Daniel Parry, 21, of Windsor, to kill the goats of Game Warden Steve Majeski.

The warden had investigated Ashline for illegally shooting a deer.

Prosecutors say that later that night Parry killed one of Majeski's goats and injured another at his West Windsor home.

The Valley News says 12 law enforcement officers from three agencies investigated.

On Wednesday, Parry pleaded not guilty to three felonies. His lawyer declined comment.

Earlier this month Ashline pleaded not guilty to accessory charges. He couldn't be reached for comment.

Authorities didn't say how much Ashline offered to pay Parry.
