A wildlife officer for the Shoshone-Bannock Nation of Idaho is challenging the tribe's decision to fire him for helping federal officials go after a tribal member.

Brett Haskett said he had an obligation to help stop tribal member Lyle March from allegedly poaching. March is under trial in federal court and several tribal employees have been called to testify against him.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said the tribes agreed to a joint investigation.
