Conservation officers investigate wasted birds

IDFG, Morgan Scott

ABERDEEN, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - At least five Canada geese were found tossed and left to waste at the base of a cliff along American Falls Reservoir near Aberdeen last week.

Idaho Fish and Game Department personnel say it is the second waste case the department has investigated in the southeast region within the past two weeks.  The first involved duck carcasses dumped off Hall Road in McCammon in late December.

And, in the Magic Valley, Fish and Game officers are investigating the waste of multiple geese along the Snake River in Minidoka County on two separate occasions in the same time frame.

According to Idaho Code, waste of game birds is illegal and the edible portions of meat must be taken. In ducks and geese, that is breast meat.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Citizens Against Poaching Hotline at 1-800-632-5999.  Callers can remain anonymous and there are rewards from information leading to arrests in any of the cases.
