BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is seeking information about who cut down trees on the Spring Bayou Wildlife Management Area in Avoyelles Parish.

After receiving a tip, LDWF Enforcement Division agents found up to 16 trees cut down in early December. Agents believe the trees were cut to block navigation to the northern part of the WMA in order to keep other hunters out of the area. Agents found the trees crossing a canal that connects Cocodrie Bayou to Bayou de la Bay. The cut trees, including cypress, oak and willow trees, ranged from 10 inches to 30 inches in diameter and up to 50 feet tall.

The department is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
