not the first time

We had this happen before. in 1984 ... We shot a buff In Utah on a once in a lifetime hunt, thats what they call it in Utah, as you can only get the permit once in your life and then you are not eligble again. We shot an animal that weighed in at over 2,000 lbs on the hoof. we took the entire animal in perfect condition directly to a local butcher shop that has a retail and game meat operation. Any way we walked out of the butcher shop with a couple of card board boxes of meat, several hundred pounds less than what what we should have recieved. We had Beef and pork fat added to the burger and sausage, and asked for the heart also. I did not say anything to the butcher at the time. I went back into the retail end of the store the next day and ask the fellow behind the counter if they ever had Buffalo for sale? he said that they had some fresh just in and I could buy an assorted number of cuts. I asked where they get the buffalo from, and the unsuspecting meat cutter told me that usually they get it from a farmer, but they had a BIG ONE come in from a hunt and he gave us a bunch of the meat in trade for the meat processing services. which of course was a lie.... This is against the law of course because you can not sale Wild game, so I had the Fish and Game do the same thing I did (sting) and they got busted. We sued in Small claims for $2,500 and they got a fine from the State.....  Now days with DNA the Fish and Game can just cross check suspected meat and determine if it has a match.. this was used on a moose caper in Homer a few years ago. and is now common practice.
Your story just brought back the anger I have for dishonest butcher shops... Its sad...
