Tip Helps Wardens Catch Poacher

KSAL StaffOctober 25, 2014

A tip helps game wardens from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism catch a poacher.

According to the agency, a citizen’s call to Operation Game Thief resulted in a poaching case made in Rawlins County this week. The investigation included the cooperative assistance of Tennessee Game Wardens, and K9 Kooper locating evidence hidden from Wardens.

Charges expected to be filed in Rawlins County District Court include taking 2 mule deer bucks without a permit, having no hunting license, hunting after legal hours, hunting at night with artificial light, wanton waste of two deer, obstruction of an investigation, and more.

The state has a hunter involved program to help fight poachers like this. Operation Game Thief is a program that provides a toll-free number for anyone witnessing wildlife-related violations to call immediately and make a report. All calls received are immediately relayed to the natural resource officer nearest the violation. The line is available anytime of day or night, every day of the year, and callers may remain anonymous. The number to call is 1-877-426-3843.
