Animal Rights Groups Continue Lawsuits To End Trapping/Hunting In Maine

Paquet is noted for controversy in wildlife issues. In November of 2005, wolves stocked and killed Kenton Joel Carnegie at a mining camp named Points North Landing in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. After a thorough investigation, it was determined that his death was the result of wolves. There were many witnesses who were at the scene presenting testimony, etc.
Just when the family of Carnegie thought they had reached closure in the case, Dr. Paquet was a member of a group seeking to reopen the case claiming bears killed Carnegie not wolves. Even though there were witnesses and the family of Kenton sought 4 independent scientists to study the evidence, all of whom agreed with the findings, Paquet insisted by looking at photographs, it was bears.
