A Lassen County man was arrested after officers discovered about 135 dead raptors, two dead bobcats, a dead mountain lion and other dead birds on his property in what is believed to be the largest raptor poaching case in California history, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Richard Parker, 67, was booked into the Lassen County Jail on multiple charges related to the illegal killings of birds of prey, officials said.

Someone notified wildlife officers in Lassen County that they had seen a man -- identified as Parker -- they saw killing a hawk near the town of Standish, east of Susanville.

A wildlife officer went to Richard's private property and found nine dead raptors, which was enough to obtain a search warrant, according to CDFW.

Several officers returned Sunday to Richard's 80-acre property and discovered the large number of dead animals -- all in varying states of decay -- as well as spent rifle casings, indicating more than 140 potential state and/or federal violations, officers said.

Most of the dead raptors were red-tailed hawks, but officers also found a dead owl and an uncommon migratory ferruginous hawk. There were also nongame birds on the property and a stuffed mountain lion, according to CDFW.
