LA: Agents get special gear to combat illegal hunting

Allen Parish DA gives LDWF night gear

February 13, 2011

OBERLIN, La. (AP) - Allen Parish District Attorney Todd Nesom has given $3,200 worth of equipment to state wildlife and fisheries agents patrolling Allen, Beauregard and Evangeline parishes.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division says it includes two spotting scopes with tripods, a night vision monocular, and a global positioning system.

The department says agents will use it for night hunting and other enforcement in areas including the West Bay Wildlife Management Area and the Ouiska Chitto River.

Officials say there were 54 night hunting cases during the recent hunting season in the three-parish area - and 35 were in or near West Bay.

Last spring and summer, they also had 300 cases along the nine-mile stretch of the Ouiska Chitto River used by canoe rental companies in Mittie.
