DNR Enforcement Report (December 16-29, 2012)
The Law Enforcement Section of Georgia’s Wildlife Resources Division protects our wildlife populations by enforcing laws, rules and regulations pertaining to game and non-game animals, threatened and endangered plants and animals, exotic animals, boating safety, litter and waste control, and other natural resource issues.
In other words, DNR Rangers enforce the law.
They’ve been busier than a pretty blonde on Free Beer Night.
This week’s report includes:
- Hunter arrested and charged with hunting deer at night, hunting from public road and hunting from a vehicle – Lee County
- Hunter shot in hand with buckshot pellet – Bryan County
- Citation violations – several counties
When they’re not out dealing with Bad Boys, conservation rangers
- administer the state’s hunter education and boating safety programs;
- investigate violations of wildlife laws as well as hunting and boating incidents; and
- conduct classes and programs to educate citizens about wildlife laws and safety practices.
