In this July 10, 2007 photo provided by U.S. Fish and Wildlife, U.S. Fish and Wildlife agent Brian Vose surveys an illegal wetlands drainage ditch on a federal easement at Alvin Peterson's farm in Lawton, N.D. Federal authorities, after dealing for decades with Peterson's pothole-emptying antics, began cracking down on him. This month _ and for the second time in four years _ Peterson was convicted of illegally emptying wetlands. Now he faces stiff fines and jail time. (AP Photo/U.S. Fish and Wildlife)
