Wildlife officers want to chat with the waterfowl hunters who dumped the carcasses of 107 ducks and two geese recently.
The breasted-out remains were found in southern Idaho by other hunters on Sunday.
“Even though the meat was taken from every bird, the location they were discarded is the problem,” said Robert Gillingham, Idaho Fish and Game conservation officeR, in a press release. “The location is highly visible, and this it put sportsmen in a bad light.”
“This is littering, plain and simple,” he said.
Anyone with information on this or any other case is asked to call Fish and Game at 208-324-4359, or the Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) hotline at 1-800-632-5999 available 24-hours a day. CAP is offering a reward for information in the case and callers may remain anonymous.
We’ll try and dig up better ideas for how to dispose of game animals.
