Area game wardens made another disturbing discovery of illegally dumped waterfowl and deer Saturday, the second such finding in recent weeks.
Sequoyah County Game Warden Jerry Henry said that in the most recent discovery, wardens found 17 uncleaned ducks, some of which had been wrapped in plastic as if they were possibly being kept for taxidermy purposes. Three cleaned doe deer carcasses were also found at the scene, which is on East 1070 Road about 1.4 miles east of Hog Creek Salvage on the east side of Little Sallisaw Creek.
In the previous dumping case, wardens discovered 19 lesser Canada geese and one snow goose. That site was on Dwight Mission Road near the eastbound Exit 303 ramp off Interstate 40 in Sequoyah County.
Henry said such activity is not allowed and those guilty of it may be fined up to $1,000.
Sequoyah County game wardens are actively searching for anyone with information leading to the suspect or suspects who dumped the animals. If you have seen something, please call Jerry Henry at (918) 431-2544 or Game Warden Brek Henry at (918) 431-2550.
