These two guys are a disgrace to hunters, not that we would even refer to them as “hunters.” Two poachers in Maryland have been charged with 73 counts of illegal hunting, and if convicted could face $50,000 each, plus jail time.

According to Maryland Natural Resources Police, John Dimingo Gallano IV, 20, of Pasadena, and Christopher Michael Johnson, 20, of Halethorpe, went out between the hours of 1 and 5 a.m. October 18, 2015, and killed eight deer from a vehicle while using a spotlight. The carcasses of a 9-point buck and three 4-point bucks were dumped in Pasadena neighborhoods.

Gallano was charged with trespassing, hunting deer with spotlights, nighttime hunting, hunting from a vehicle, shooting from a road, hunting within a safety zone, hunting on private land without permission, failing to report a kill, wanton waste of deer, false entry in a public record, and illegal dumping. He is due in Anne Arundel County District Court Oct. 11, in Baltimore County District Court Nov. 14, and in Howard County District Court Nov. 17.

    Seem awfully happy for mugshots.

    Through the book at them. They obviously don’t think it’s a big deal

  • labhunter1

    If those are mug shots it is clear these idiots don’t care. Make sure these two never get the right to hunt again. Let them think about it behind bars also.

    • Godfrey Daniel

      Do you actually think not having the “right” to hunt will stop these two clowns? What they did was not “hunting” to start with.

      • labhunter1

        that’s where the behind bars will take care of it at least for a while.

    Under Armour fans to boot. Big surprise.

  • chilly16

    I’m not really sure that the fine is large enough, much less a lil jail time!!!

  • jones

    send them a message they are both on facebook

  • Opus 0321

    I would gladly volunteer to put a bullet in each ones head. They have proved without a doubt that they have NO redeemable qualities just by the way they slaughtered these animals and then wasted the precious meat and dumped the carcasses in peoples neighborhoods for shock value. If a bullet is too much for some of you, then I’ll use a hammer to crush every bone in their hands and fingers!! Now, would you like to know how I really feel ?

  • BruceB

    They should be jailed and heavily fined. No need to waste perfectly good meat that can be used for food by the needy and others who actually enjoy that kind of meat. The way they shot these animals, is an afront to real hunting, which is more of a skill and a sport.

  • Rodger Tucker

    An absolute vile disgust against humanity in every form. Look it up………people who are this way against animals are only an early sign of what they will do to humans.(FACT).If the judge in this case does not lock them up & throw away the key it will surely come back to haunt them later.

  • Goldrimmer

    Give them prison + death by anal rape.
