Game warden catches poacher via dating app
Oklahoma Game Warden Cannon Harrison said he uncovered the poaching in a conversation on Bumble with a McIntosh County woman. She talked about using a spotlight to shoot the deer at night, outside the rifle season. The woman harvested only the head and back-strap meat — and she sent Harrison pictures as proof.
The woman has pleaded guilty to charges of improper possession of an illegally taken animal and taking game out-of-season. She and an accomplice face $2,400 fines.
The incident was posted to the Oklahoma Game Wardens Facebook page on Sunday night. As of Wednesday afternoon, the post (right) had generated more than 2,200 reactions, 1,800 shares and 660 comments.
