DNR Enforcement Report (December 30, 2012 — January 5, 2013)

GA Wildlife

Our friends at the Georgia Department of Natural Resources are pretty dang smart.

When bad apples, poachers and other desperadoes get a bit too wild, the DNR sends Rangers from their Wildlife Resources Division to calm them down.

The headlines from this week’s report on life that got too wild include:

  • Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia – Bryan County
  • Hunting ducks over bait, hunting with unplugged shotgun – Bleckley County
  • Citation violations – several counties

The Law Enforcement Section of Wildlife Resources Division protects Georgia’s 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 addition, 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.
