Reporting poachers, cyber style

Since it’s now possible to buy hunting or fishing licenses online, it seems only fitting that sportsmen should be able to go online to report poachers as well. Check this out, from the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources:

Reporting poaching activities just became easier. Last week DNR Law Enforcement added a Web page to the WVDNR.gov domain letting sportsman report illegal poaching statewide. When a sportsman reports a violation the information will be e-mailed to the proper supervisor responsible for the area.  To view the site click here: http://www.wvdnr.gov/LEnforce/Poachers.shtm

Hunters who carry smart phones should be able to report suspicious activity from the field, quickly and quietly.

Cool stuff, if you ask me…
