Oklahoma game wardens are looking for leads in fish dumping case.
Law enforcement officials are increasingly looking to the public for help in cracking cases these days. And the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation is no exception. Game wardens there are currently looking to the public for leads in a case of wanton waste of fish in Tulsa County.
Someone dumped a lot of crappies along the road side near Snake Creek Bridge, south of 191st Street near Bixby. And the game wardens suspect multiple people may have been involved as witnesses saw possible suspects driving nearby in a red Jeep Wrangler.
The wardens posted a photo of the dead fish to their social media channels. Perhaps the worst part of this case is while the people responsible did fillet some of the fish, many others were left whole and wasted.
There may be a reward for information leading to arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. The department is asking anyone with information to contact Tulsa County game warden Brandon Fulton at 918-640-0316.
People can also use the state’s Operation Game Thief line to report information at 1-800-522-8039.
