(Neb)-Game And Parks Seeking Information On Dumping Of Dead Birds
LINCOLN, Neb. - The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is asking the public for information on the illegal dumping of 78 dead waterfowl southwest of Melbeta in Scotts Bluff County late last week. The violation was reported to Game and Parks law enforcement over the weekend.
Conservation Officer Jim Zimmerman says it appears the carcasses of 52 Canada geese and 33 ducks were thrown into a waterway with no attempt to salvage any of the meat on any of the birds.
Anyone who intentionally abandons an edible portion of game or fails to dispose of game in a reasonable and sanitary manner is guilty of the crime of wanton waste.
Anyone with information about this case can contact Zimmerman at 308-641-9590. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call Nebraska Wildlife Crimestoppers at 1-800-742-7627. Information resulting in an arrest may result in a cash reward.
