The other day I run across an unbelievable story of how dumb people can be. The story encouraged me to search for the dumbest poachers and let me tell you I found lots of stories. Here is a small selection of what I think must be some of the most stupid poachers.
I am glad that these people have the IQ that God usually grants a gob of cheese, that way they got caught and could be prosecuted. For the non-hunting readers of this blog, poachers are not hunters. Poachers break the law hunters on the other hand obey the law as well self-imposed ethical and moral standards. Poachers are thieves. Hunters are conservationists.
The Centre Daily Times reports;
Stepbrothers charged with shooting cows on first day of deer hunt
State police say two Fayette County stepbrothers shot and killed four cows after dusk on the first day of deer rifle hunting season.
Police say 21-year-old Ronald Dwayne Regish III, of Dunbar, and 22-year-old Allen Kessler, of Normalville, fired 10 shots at the cows in Saltlick Township. A juvenile is also charged with firing a shot.
Police say the men used a spotlight to find the animals and told police they thought the animals were deer.
The men are charged with agricultural vandalism, criminal conspiracy, criminal mischief and cruelty to animals.
Police say spent rifle shells were found 50 to 200 yards from the cows.
Here is a video of three morons poaching steelhead salmon in a creek. These three stooges were so smart that they not only videotaped their criminal action (accepted evidence in the court) but also posted the video on YouTube for the all the world to see. It seems quite common now for crooks, not only poachers, to film their crimes and then post the video on a public forum such as YouTube. I think it is a good idea if crooks film the crimes they commit, it makes the job of the police colleting evidence so much easier.
