A southern Ohio wildlife officer and five top officials of the Ohio Division of Wildlife were indicted Monday morning by a grand jury. All were charged with feilonies over the illegal sale of a resident Ohio hunting license to a South Carolina wildlife officer saving him $106. The Ohio wildlife officer allowed the S. Carolina officer to use his address as his home to avoid paying the non-resident cost of a hunting license.
The top officials were charged with failure to investigate the deception as a crime. ODOW administrative officials charged with a fiftrh-degree felonies are: The Chief, Assistant Chief and a law enforcement administrator.
I'm very sorry to hear that our ODOW considers themselves above the lawsthat we all must follow. All of them should be run out of the division.
This apeared in the Cleveland Plain Dealer today.
They have lost some of my respect today.
Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.
