Oklahoma game warden catches poacher via dating app
CHECOTAH, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma woman looking for love got more than she bargained for when she unwittingly shared her exhilaration about illegally shooting a "bigo buck" on a dating app with a state game warden.
Oklahoma Game Warden Cannon Harrison says he uncovered the poaching in a conversation on Bumble with a McIntosh County woman. She talked about using a spotlight to shoot the deer at night, outside the rifle season. The woman only harvested the head and back-strap meat - and she sent Harrison pictures as proof.
The woman has pleaded guilty to charges of improper possession of an illegally taken animal and taking game out-of-season. She and an accomplice face $2,400 fines.
The incident was posted to the Oklahoma Game Wardens Facebook page on Sunday night.
