Louisiana Operation Game Thief Pays Out $3950

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries reported yesterday (October 7, 2019) that
Louisiana Operation Game Thief, Inc. (LOGT), a Louisiana wildlife crime-stoppers program, awarded $3,950 to diligent citizens statewide at their quarterly meeting on October 2nd in Mansura.

The LOGT board reviewed 12 cases that included public tips from informants.  A total of 27 subjects were apprehended and a total of 62 offenses were written in regards to the reviewed cases. The cases reviewed and awarded money to the public for their assistance consisted of deer, migratory game bird, alligator, oyster and fishing cases.

Anyone wishing to report wildlife or fisheries violations should anonymously call LDWF’s 24-hour toll free Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-800-442-2511.

LOGT was instituted in 1984 and provides cash rewards for information leading to the arrest of violators of fish and wildlife regulations.  Funds are raised through private donations, court directed contributions and through contributions from cooperative endeavor agreements with organizations such as the National Wild Turkey Federation and Quality Deer Management Association.
