Illegally Caught Trout Seized, Fed To Hungry Animals In Need

Nice story from KTXV ABC-10 TV in Sacramento (see above video). Wildlife officers arrested a suspected poacher and confiscated the 54 fish the arrested man allegedly took. Then the fun began. Here’s a little bit from the story:

Poaching evidence is normally disposed of, because it is not considered fit for human consumption. In this case, wildlife officers were able to donate the poached trout to Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, which is a state-recognized animal rehabilitation center. 

The fish fed three orphan bear cubs, several raccoons, and an eagle at the care center, which recently opened its new location at 1551 Al Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe.

Good to see the fish go to those diners in need!
