Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited an individual for a migratory game bird violation in Plaquemines Parish on Sept. 17.
Agents cited Connor Andrew Power, 23, of Hammond, for transporting completely dressed migratory game birds.
Agents were on patrol in the Venice area on Sept. 17 when they observed Power operating a vessel. Agents made contact with Power and found him in possession of 24 migratory game bird breasts with no tags or identifiers present.
Agents seized the 24 individual migratory game bird breasts and donated them to a local charity.
It is illegal to transport fully dressed migratory game birds without leaving the head or one fully feathered wing attached to the bird.
Transporting completely dressed migratory game birds brings a $400 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail. Power may also face civil restitution totaling $319 for the replacement value of the migratory game birds.
Participating agents for this case are Sgt. Villere Reggio and Agent Josh Schilling
