According to Conservation Officer Trevor Meadows, “The birds were dumped prior to November 15th. This is an egregious situation of wasting waterfowl. If anyone witnessed a vehicle in the pull-off just north of the Camas and Gooding county line, please let us know a description of the vehicle or the occupants.”

At this time, this is a situation of wanton waste.
