State DNR unveils online way to report poachers

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state Division of Natural Resources now has a way online for turning in poaching and other illegal wildlife activities.

Tips can be reported to the DNR’s law enforcement section’s website at http://www.wvdnr.gov.

Lt. Col. Jerry Jenkins says the DNR has a limited number of police officers in the field, so the public plays a vital role in protecting natural resources by reporting violations.

Witnesses to a potential violation are asked to collect as much information as possible without confronting the individual under suspicion. Jenkins says helpful information includes a description of the people involved and any vehicles and license plates, the type of violation and the time it occurred.

He says those who report such crimes will remain anonymous.
