Jeffrey Peacock, 46, of Lebanon, Pa., appeared by telephone Tuesday in Juneau District Court, the Juneau Empire reported.
Peacock pleaded guilty to baiting a bear without a permit, unlawful possession of game and unsworn falsification in the shooting of the black wolf, all misdemeanors.
Six-month jail terms for each of the three convictions were suspended, but Peacock must pay a $2,000 fine, $600 restitution and serve three years on probation.
Before imposing the sentence, Judge Keith Levy told Peacock that "I can't ignore the fact that a lot of people in the community feel that this case is different and that the wolf involved was something special to this community."
The black wolf that was killed was believed to be a wolf called "Romeo" that was much beloved by many residents in the Juneau area.
Levy told Peacock the sentence was "an opportunity to show that this is not the kind of behavior you want to continue."
Alaska Wildlife Troopers arrested Peacock and his guide, Park Myers, 40, of Juneau on May 21 after a lengthy investigation by the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Federal agents found that Peacock and Myers had unlawfully taken one wolf and two black bears in the Juneau area and were operating an unlawful bear baiting site along the road system.
Myers pleaded guilty Nov. 3 to unlawfully taking big game by using a rim fire cartridge to take a wolf, unlawful possession of that wolf, establishing a black bear station to hunt bear using bait or scent lures without an Alaska Department of Fish & Game permit and two additional counts of unlawful possession of game resulting from incidents between May 2009 and May 2010.
Myers also received a suspended sentence but was ordered to pay $5,000 in fines and $1,100 restitution.
