Public encouraged to report New Hampshire wildlife crime
CONCORD (AP) — With the fall hunting season underway, New Hampshire Fish and Game Department conservation officers are encouraging the public to help report wildlife crime.
If people are aware of a poaching situation, trespassing, destruction of property, littering, theft, or other issues, they can call Operation Game Thief. Calls also encouraged for incidences such as someone taking an over-limit of fish, shooting an animal out of season, hunting without a license, or leaving trash in an area where they have been hunting or fishing.
Violations can be reported to Operation Game Thief online anytime at www.wildnh.com/ogt, or call the 24-hour hotline at 1-800-344-4262.
Confidentiality is guaranteed, and rewards are paid for tips that lead to arrest or citation.
