Nevada Department of Wildlife game wardens are seeking any tips or information on fourteen ducks found killed and left to waste near Gardnerville Ranchos on March 12th.

None of the ducks were field cleaned and several were still attached to a duck strap that was also abandoned.

"We need the public's help in cases like these," said Reid Varble, the game warden stationed in Gardnerville. "This crime really disgusts me. There is no reason to let meat rot and take these birds from sportsmen and taxpayers." Operation Game Thief (OGT) is offering a reward of $500 for information on this crime. Anyone with information can contact OGT at (800) 992-3030. Calls will remain anonymous.
