Wasted geese
Brian Jack, Idaho Department of Fish and Game

Idaho Department of Fish and Game is asking the public for information about two recent cases of Canada geese, mallard and goldeneye carcasses dumped near Kuna Butte.

Fish and Game conservation officer Brian Flatter found nine Canada geese, and two duck carcasses left to waste Jan. 19 along Swan Falls Road south of Kuna. On Feb. 5 fellow conservation officer Brian Jack found 31 Canada goose carcasses dumped in the same area. Both conservation officers were responding to calls.

No meat from any of the birds had been taken. Idaho code requires that the breast meat be removed before disposing of a harvested waterfowl carcass.

Citizens Against Poaching is offering a reward for information in the case and callers can remain anonymous. Contact Citizens Against Poaching at 1-800-632-5999 24 hours a day.

Evidence was collected at the scene, but the officers would like to speak with anyone who might have information about the wanton waste case.

“I’m hopeful someone will make a call,” Jack said, “and provide information to move this case forward.”

In addition to the Citizens Against Poaching hotline, persons with information regarding this case may also contact the Idaho Department of Fish and Game Nampa office at 208-465-8465 weekdays, Idaho State Police at 208-846-7550 on weekends or the Ada County Sheriff’s Office anytime at 208-377-6790.
