Turn In Poachers
It was an anonymous tip to the “Turn In Poachers” program that led to the uncovering of a massive case of overfishing.
DNR officials said four men face charges following a five-year investigation that ended with 37 guns and 28 deer antler sets being seized.
The Department of Natural Resources put a trophy-size rack of antlers on display at their offices in St. Paul on Tuesday, but they’re not exactly happy about it.
A 26-year-old northern Minnesota man faces a fine of almost $400 after admitting to shooting and killing a tundra swan, a federally protected bird, last month, the Department of Natural Resources says.
The Department of Natural Resources says a surge in calls to its Turn In Poachers hotline led to a significant increase in poaching arrests.
