/*California Fish and Game Commission*/ President Daniel Richards angered animal-rights activists when a picture surfaced showing him holding a mountain lion he shot and killed in Idaho. The practice is illegal in California.
California's ethics agency, the /*Fair Political Practices Commission*/, sent Richards a warning letter, but not for shooting the lion. The commission said he broke the law by accepting the hunting trip as a gift.
Richards has since repaid the amount and the case is now considered closed.
