An Illinois man has pleaded guilty to illegally obtaining whitetail deer semen valued at $55,000.

U.S. Attorney John M. Bales said the semen came from a buck in East Texas that Raymond Favero knew had been illegally transported from out of state. The 55-year-old Braidwood, Ill., man entered his guilty plea Wednesday in a federal court in Tyler.

If the court accepts his plea agreement, Favero would be placed on five years' probation, fined $150,000 payable to a U.S. Fish & Wildlife reward fund and ordered to pay $50,000 in restitution to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation.
