VA GAME AGENTS SPEND YOUR MONEY TO SHOOT ELEPHANTS IN AFRICA

Perhaps game agents are getting bored merely killing deer and turkeys, for according to the Richmond Times Dispatch, a VA newspaper, Department of Game and Inland Fisheries chairman, Daniel A. Hoffler, led a 17-day jaunt to Zimbabwe that was supposed to be about the business of “global game management and conservation.” Instead it became a personal vacation safari that bagged an elephant, an impala and a sable. Virginia is investigating whether officials at the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries improperly used state credit cards to pay for about $12,000 in expenses for the trip. According to one of our VA members, they also killed a white rhino on the endangered species list!

The Dept. of Inland Fisheries is holding a hearing on March 24th. Please write to the Dept. at 4010 W. Broad St., Richmond, VA to demand the removal of these corrupt officials and their replacement with a diverse group of people who have the welfare of wildlife and environment at heart.

VA residents, please contact your legislators and the following:

  • Governor Mark Warner,
    State Capitol, Richmond, Va.
  • Ms. Judith Jagdman,
    State Attorney General,
    900 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia

(she will say you have to wait until official investigation is over, etc but it is good to put pressure on her).

  • Editor of The Editorial Pages,
    Richmond Times Dispatch,
    P. O. Box 85333, Richmond, Va. 23293
