Minn. Poachers ‘Wall of Shame’ Stolen From DNR
ST. PAUL (AP) – Police are searching for whoever stole a poachers’ “Wall of Shame” from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
More than 20 animal mounts were stolen from the DNR in St. Paul over the weekend.
Several thousands of dollars worth of chain saws and power tools also are missing from a storage area of the DNR’s Region 3 offices.
The DNR says vandals smashed windows in numerous vehicles and cut padlocks on trailers, garage doors and the front gate.
Also taken were snowmobile trailer ramps and animal mounts from a Turn In Poachers trailer. They included trophy bucks, a bear and a walleye.
The mounts are actual animals recovered from poachers.
