MINIDOKA COUNTY — Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG) asks for help finding those responsible for dumping nine Canada geese along the Snake River in Minidoka County. IDFG officers received a report on Tuesday about the geese, which were all intact when found with no meat taken.

The geese were likely dumped either the evening of December 28 or early on December 29, according to Senior Conservation Officer Aaron Adruska.

“Taking game animals for the thrill of the kill, only to waste them is completely unacceptable behavior,” said Andruska, “poaching of any kind only takes these resources away from Idahoans who legally hunt and fish in Idaho.”

If you have any information about the geese, it is encouraged to provide the information to IDFG. Any information leading to the conviction of the people involved in the case can result in a reward.

Reports can be called into the Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) hotline 24-hours a day at 1-800-632-5999, or reports can be filed online at the CAP webpage. Information can also be given directly to Officer Aaron Andruska at (208) 539-4410 or by calling the Magic Valley Regional Office at (208) 324-4359.
