Waterbury VT – Vermont State Game Wardens are appealing to the public for help in curtailing poaching activities. Wardens are asking for people who witness or have knowledge of poaching to contact them quickly.
If you hear a shot in the night, see lights in a field or have any information about a poaching incident, please contact Vermont Fish and
Wildlife game wardens immediately. Col. Jason Batchelder, Vermont’s chief game warden said: “The quickest way to reach a warden is by
calling your nearest State Police office so the radio dispatcher can give the information to a warden in the area.” Try to give details like names, vehicle descriptions, vehicle plate
information, and direction of travel. Wardens can often discover evidence and piece together a case if they investigate the situation rapidly.
If you have information about any illegal activity relating to Vermont’s wildlife, you also can anonymously call Operation Game Thief at 1-800-75ALERT (1-800-752-5378). Rewards are paid for information leading to arrests
