This poacher got a court date from a dating app!
In a definite contender for "funniest dumb poacher story ever," an Oklahoma woman unwittingly confessed her wildlife crime to a game warden via a dating app.
McIntosh County Game Warden Cannon Harrison recently and unexpectedly found his professional and private life intertwined when the unnamed woman he was chatting with on a dating app began bragging about having just shot a "bigo buck."
The woman was obviously unaware of Harrison's chosen profession. When Harrison subtly pressed her for details, she suspiciously responded with "Well we don't need to talk about that."
Screen shots of the conversation posted by the wardens on their Facebook page revealed it was amazingly easy to get her to admit her crime. As soon as Harrison asked her about spotlighting the animal, she responded "Yeahhhh."
To his credit, Harrison even got the woman to send him photos of the deer and admit where it was shot. Judging from the photos, she obviously doesn't realize what constitutes a "bigo buck" either.
She likely got quite the surprise later when wardens showed up to her home to further question her about the case. The wardens say the woman has already pleaded guilty and has already paid fines in the case. There was no word on if the two have a second date planned.
