Man allegedly sold deer, raccoons to Ill. eateries

KNOX, Ind. - Indiana conservation officers have arrested a man for illegally selling deer, raccoons and other wildlife to markets and restaurants in Chicago's Chinatown district for use in meals.

Forty-seven-year-old Alexander Moy of Chicago was being held Tuesday in northwestern Indiana's Starke County Jail on a charge of illegally selling wildlife .

Lt. Tom Torsell says the 47-year-old Moy was arrested Monday in the town of Hamlet, about 25 miles southwest of South Bend, following an undercover investigation. Moy operates the Kankakee Valley Fish Farm in Starke County.

Torsell says the investigation is continuing. He says it's not known yet whether any of the deer, raccoons, turtles or fish that Moy allegedly sold were ever served to people.

It's not clear whether Moy has an attorney. He hasn't appeared in court yet.
