Kingman letters:Poaching: Who do you call?

I go walking with my mother every night on the back side of Rancho Santa Fe. On a recent night we came across what appeared to be a fresh deer carcass.

I contacted Game and Fish and nothing was done. I explained to them that the head was cut off (obviously by a human) and was still laying there. I know as a hunter that nothing is in season right now and I'm extremely upset at the situation.

I also know that the remains will be gone by morning. Can you provide me with someone local to contact?

@ FLS

Reading comprehension lesson, please read carefully...there may be a test later!!!

Amber Stacklie's written words:

First paragraph, second sentence...

"On a recent night we came across what appeared to be a fresh deer carcass".

Second paragraph second sentence...

"I explained to them that the head was cut off (obviously by a human) and was still laying there".

Do you get the idea that the head, which you assumed was carried off, was still with the carcass?

In your futile and silly attempt to make political fodder out of this letter, you have done nothing more than to make yourself look even more ridiculous than normal.

Thank you for finally recognizing the facts. Even the most hard-core pathetic rightie gets things correct - once in a whel.

"I don't condone this but did you stop to think that maybe someone was getting food for themselves or their family."

And they were so weak from hunger that they could only the the strength had to carry away the head. Must be the bad economy. And it's Bush's fault!

(sarcasm, off)

LOL

Ya this persons family must have been starving for them to take the head. Its illegal to harvest an animal out of season I dont care the circumstance.

Really! It's still illegal if it's out of season and a starving family doesn't change anything..

@ Rick O'Shea

The letter writer states that she and her mother came upon a deer carcass and that the head was cut off and still laying there...doesn't seem to have been killed for food...

"On the other hand, Game & Fish is notoriously lax in upholding the law or helping people."

Yes, that is absolutely true, as I also can attest to in my dealings with the local Game and Fish Office with their ignorance on a completely different matter concerning BLM grazing allotments on public lands, which was also corroborated by another sportsman by the name of "Sturm Gewehr". HOO WEE! LOL!

Say there Rick, did you not read the part about just the head being cut off? Generally when I kill a deer and plan on eating the meat (which is always) I bring the whole deer with me and not just the head.

If someone was eating the deer all this lady would have found would be the guts.

Unsure if this letter was written prior to Game and Fish contact, but a wildlife manager did respond. Anyone wishing to report a wildlife violation should contact Operation Game Thief at (800) 352-0700. The initial call was received at 9 p.m. and an officer responded within 12 hours. The scene involved an elk head from the previous hunting season and there was no indication of illegal activity. Game and Fish is a small state agency and officers are not always immediately available.

I don't condone this but did you stop to think that maybe someone was getting food for themselves or their family. If you kill an animal for food I don't have an issue but if you kill an animal just to kill it, that's wrong to me.

Did you get a name of who you talked to?

Maybe Fish and Game is like the Sheriff's Office and takes forever to show up when you need them.....

And doesn't Fish and Game have that report a poaching hotline?

Arizona Game and Fish Dept.
Operation Game Thief - Wildlife's Answer to 911 - Is a silent witness, anti-poaching program that encourages the public to report any suspicious activity or knowledge about a poaching violation.
