The state has dismissed a charge of unlawfully killing a cougar filed against the former chairman of the New Mexico State Game Commission in a Tucumcari Magistrate Court, but will refile the charge in state District Court.

Tim Rose, the 10th Judicial District Attorney, will pursue the case against Scott P. Bidegain, a rancher who resigned from the State Game Commission in February after he was charged with participating in the illegal killing of a cougar.
