A new report from the Washington Post published Wednesday night said the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia spent his final days at a west Texas ranch among high-ranking members of an elite secret society of hunters.
Scalia died while staying at Cibolo Creek Ranch, where some of the other guests were members of the International Order of St. Hubertus, according to the Post.
The worldwide fraternity’s origins trace back to 17th-century Austria. The newspaper called the group “an exclusive fraternity for hunters.” The English translation of their motto is, “Honoring God by honoring His creatures.”
“There is nothing I can add to your observation that among my many guests at Cibolo Creek Ranch over the years some members of the International Order of St. Hubertus have been numbered,” ranch owner John Poindexter told the Post via email. “I am aware of no connection between that organization and Justice Scalia.”
The Post reported Scalia’s direct affiliation with the group “is unclear.”
