05/07/2018 Fish & Wildlife has stated that it will take some times to complete their investigation before they can get the DA to file charges.

04/16/2018 Richard Parker may have been baiting the raptors. Luring in the birds then shooting them dead. This story just gets worse! Parker was a member of Pheasants Forever. He was a bird hunter.

"Some Lassen County residents have called the paper to report Parker allegedly had been baiting the raptors in order to protect a pheasant hunting club on his ranch."

The California Department of Fish & Wildlife continues its investigation. They will submit their case to the DA when their investigation is complete.

04/03/2018 Richard Parker may be the biggest poacher in modern US history. The largest previous poaching case was 150 deer taken by 11 men. If Richard Parker killed these all by himself which I believe he did, he would be the biggest individual poacher in the US. Deer are able to be hunted with certain permits during certain times. Hawks are never allowed to be hunted.

03/21/2018 Richard Parker is no longer a member of Ducks Unlimited.

"He is not a member of Ducks Unlimited here in Susanville. I have been chairman and vice chairman for the the last 13 years. I am currently District chairman for region 1. I have not seen him at any other events in Northeastern Calif. He may purchase a membership online, which we have no control."

Richard Parker is no longer the head of the Chamber of Commerce for Lassen County.

03/20/2018 I've been getting some threatening DMs, emails and posts from people in Susanville and Lassen County. First they state that everyone in Lassen County isn't a redneck criminal. I never stated they were. Then they call me nasty names with bad spelling and threaten to physically harm me and wish me dead. Then they call me a "libtard" "democrap" stating they don't need laws and regulations telling them what to do. One a female truck driver said that people in Lassen County hate regulations, laws and people telling them what to do. She said that is "what ruined Lassen County." Yes, because Lassen county wanted to cut down all the trees, mine all the minerals and put mine waste in the waterways and kill all the animals for sport. That is what harmed Lassen County. That is what allowed Richard Parker to kill 135 protected birds and other animals for fun. Richard  Parker just left the dead animals all over his place just like a pigeon shooting contest. Richard Parker's wife and son saw all those dead animals laying around and thought it was perfectly fine.

03/18/2018 I saw this in a California hunting group. Even the hunters were totally against what he did. They said he should be charged with a felony so he can't have a gun. "I was at a F and W meeting on the evening of 3/14/2018 and heard from a warden that the guy thought he was helping the quail and game bird population."

03/16/2018 Richard Parker is VERY well connected in this tiny town. I called the police to get his booking number and they stated it wasn't public information. Yes, it is public information. I told them I had his booking photo, above. They said the booking photo was not public. They said they didn't provide it. Then where did it come from? Fish and Wildlife? The clerk was very snotty on the phone refusing to release any information at all. I called the DA and got the same run around. I bet the DA will refuse to press charges. Maybe they'll even try to negotiate a pre-filing diversion program. If someone had reported the poaching to police, nothing would have happened. In fact someone may have reported it to the police and they did nothing. Thankfully the person reported it to Fish and Wildlife which are state and federal.

CLARIFICATION: When I said below that half the population of Susanville is incarcerated I obviously didn't mean that half of the population living in Susanville committed crimes in Susanville and ended up in the prisons in Susanville. Most of the people incarcerated there come from different parts of the state or other states. The prisons just happened to be located in Susanville because the city, county wanted them built there for economic reasons.

Half the population of this town is in prison. It was originally a mining, logging and farming town until they they agreed to have the prisons built there because they had no people, money or jobs due to mining and logging regulations. Half of the unincarcerated adult population in Susanville work for the prisons. Susanville is the county seat of Lassen county. Parker's family has been here for years and years and are deeply involved in politics.

Finally got the booking number 20180237.

ORIGINAL: Richard Earl Parker was born 21 MAY 1950 in Lassen, California and lives at 473 Wistos Ln 125, Standish, CA, 96128, APN 119-020-72, Lassen County, California, phone 530 257-8586. That property is actually in Susanville. It's 78 acres so it matches the report. It's 3 beds, 4 bath ranch built in 1996 when he bought it for $202,000. He owns it with his current wife Tonya Roxanne Reddoch Parker. They refinanced all the equity out of the property and owe about $400,000. The Susan river runs through his property. His nickname is "Dick." Suits him.

He graduated from Sacramento State University with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Criminal Law in 1973. He graduated from Lassen High School in Susanville in 1968. He was on the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors 15 years, Lassen County Hospital Board of Directors as Vice President for 22 years, Ducks Unlimited Committee co-chair for ten years. He is married to Tonya Roxanne Reddoch Parker and has a kid named Anthony born in 1992. His ex-wife was Marian D St Peter. They divorced in 1979 with two children, Juliah and Richard. His father was Charles "Charlie" Parker 1921-2005. His mother is Frances W Cannon Parker born 1922. His siblings are Robbin and Charlene. His dad was also well connected. I'm sure Richard will use that to try to get a lighter sentence. Here is his resume.

Ducks Unlimited states they are a "conservation" group that wants to "conserve game birds." What they really do is shoot game birds. Their email is shoot@ducks.org. In March they had a pigeon shoot fundraiser where they shot, maimed and killed 2,000 wild pigeons which they trapped. The pigeons they shoot dead are the lucky ones. They leave the injured birds on the ground to slowly die. They do this every year even though the Governor stated that it's animal cruelty. Richard Parker stated he was the co-chair of Ducks Unlimited in his resume.

This March animal rescuers went and rescued the dying and maimed birds left on the ground. They euth'd the dying and nursed the others back to health. Below is a photo from Duck's Unlimited pigeon shoot. It looks like Richard Parker's yard with dead birds and spent shells everywhere.



Based on evidence it appears he shot and killed the birds and bobcats because they were killing the ducks he wanted to shoot.  If you look at the images of his property down below you can see tire tracks going to the river from his house. He appears to have made a partial damn in the river which runs through his property. He previously said he wanted ponds on his property to attract ducks. He admitted he is a water fowl hunter who was trying to attract ducks to his land.

He previously sold insurance in Susanville, California at 2213 Main St, Susanville, CA 96130, Phone number (530) 257-7526 in 2015 selling insurance at "Richard E Parker Insurance."

He had a website which he shut down. This is from that website. http://web.archive.org/web/20070224000449/http://www.iib.bz:80/

In 1999 he actually got the government to spend money to restore wildlife to the property. Then he went and killed them? He's an admitted bird hunter. Lassen County Times, Susanville, California, Nov 23 1999. The article is "Man sets fire to own property for the birds." He's a member of Ducks Unlimited which encourages restoration of wetlands so hunters can shoot the birds attracted to the land.

Here is the entire article. Parker bought that property in 1995. His goal was to transform the land to attract birds and mammals. In 1999 working with the Wetland Habitat Enhancement Program, California Department of Forestry, US Fish & Wildlife Services, Pheasants Forever and Ducks Unlimited he used government funds to restore the land. He brought water and natural food to the land to attract wildlife. He states he's a conservation hunter. Click this link to full file so you can read it.

Turns out he has a horrible history of abusing the law. In 2001 there was a recall election to remove him as a director of the Lassen Municipal Utility District for abuse of power, violation of public trust, abdication of authority, intentional misuse of public funds, Brown Act violations.... In a meeting Richard Parker said "environmentalists" are just "bunny huggers."

"Someone" placed a political ad asking people to vote no on the recall.



“Poaching crimes of this egregious nature against raptors is unprecedented in California,” said David Bess, CDFW Deputy Director and Chief of the Law Enforcement Division. “The local raptor population may take years to recover from these killings.”

"Each potential violation is a misdemeanor poaching crime at the state level, with maximum penalties of six months in jail and up to a $5,000 fine per each raptor. An unlawfully taken mountain lion could result in up to a $10,000 penalty. Each potential federal crime could result in additional penalties."

126 dead birds of prey would be $630,000 fine for the birds and $10,000 for the mountain lion at the state level. The two illegal takes of bobcats are about the same. The jail time is six months per bird or 63 years. Like I said he's well connected. He'll get off easy.

He also violated the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act. "Title 16 USC Section 707(a) makes any violation of Section 703 a misdemeanor punishable by six months in jail and a $15,000 penalty for each and every bird injured or killed." This would be another 63 years and $1.89M in fines just for the birds for a grand total of 126 years in jail and $2.52M in fines. Still, no felony which means he could keep his guns.

Lassen County has a pre-file diversion program. I hope they don't allow Parker to be able to use the program. These are some serious charges.

Most of the birds he killed were red-tailed hawks. I think he may have killed them as they kill ducks which he likes to hunt. The fact that he shot them off roosts and just left their dead bodies there shows that he hates the birds. That's probably also why he killed the bobcats and just left their bodies to rot where they died.

Richard appears to have altered the river that runs through his property. Someone built something in the river maybe to catch fish, ducks?




You can tell by the car tracks that he frequently drives to the river. Maybe that is where he shoots and kills the ducks. Whoever turned him in clearly knew him and had been to his house. There isn't another neighbor that would drive by his house. No one could see what he was doing unless they were on the property.

There was a paternity case filed against him in 2009. It looks like he had to pay support for a child.

  1. THIS IS A DISGUSTING EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING. I HOPE HE DOES NOT GET OFF EASY. HE DESERVES MAJOR PUNISHMENT.

  2. Great reporting except for one part. The DA hasnt even seen the complaint yet and most likely wont until the investigation is complete. (2-3 months) DA here is a woman that works closely with DFW and fights the small town corruption you speak of. She is even being pushed out of office. We are proud of our strong, independent DA here. The rest? Not so much.

    1. Then perhaps 63 yrs is what he'll get.

  3. He will have bigger problems when the State Water Resources Board gets a hold of him. Messing with any natural waterway brings big fines.
