DNR Investigating After 91 Birds Shot, Illegally Dumped In Indiana

Authorities say it was not the work of a hunter

Authorities are searching for answers after finding 91 birds shot and illegally dumped in northwest Indiana.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources District 10 conservation officers said they located the birds, all snow geese, on the side of a road near Hebron in Porter County. Officers determined the birds were dumped earlier this week, the DNR said in a Facebook post.

The DNR does not believe a hunter dumped the birds, saying an action like this is “disturbing and detrimental to the positive image that the hunting community is known for.”

Officers are following several leads and urge anyone with information to call (812) 837-9536 or the DNR tip line, 1-800-TIP-IDNR.
