Bloomington, IN – Indiana’s wildlife protection efforts were bolstered by an alert citizen’s tip, leading to significant poaching charges against two men. 

According to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the announcement made on Friday revealed a disturbing case of illegal deer hunting in the state.

The department stated that these individuals, already known for previous poaching activities, were involved in the illegal shooting of nine deer. Most of these deers were hunted over bait, a practice prohibited by state law. Additionally, none of the deer were reported or checked in as required, compounding the legal violations. 

Further investigations uncovered that these deer were not only poached but also sold illegally, adding to the severity of the charges.

The breakthrough in this case came from an anonymous tip received by the authorities, highlighting the vital role of community vigilance in wildlife conservation. Indiana Conservation Officer Crockett, leading the investigation, was pivotal in uncovering the details of this illegal operation.

The Department encourages anyone with information about wildlife violations to contact them at 1-800-TIPIDNR. This hotline is a critical tool for the public to report wildlife crimes, ensuring the protection of Indiana’s natural resources.
