AS FEATURED IN 'FIELD AND FREEZER' MAGAZINE

Alexander Donninger, who was charged with poaching in a Kufstein court, said the fish a passerby reported him for poaching from the lake in the Kufstein district were actually frozen trout he had purchased from a local supermarket and allowed to thaw in order to impress his children with his fishing skills.

I wonder what they would do if you got caught poaching an egg?

Creeping fascism in Austria?

Who would have thought it?

The proper punishment for this would be to require the accused to listen to a recording of someone, maybe an Oktoberfest band, singing Edelweiss. Over and over and over.

That's just silly. Everybody knows you need boiling water to poach a fish.
