Wildlife Police Get Into Holiday Spirit While Busting Gillnetting Salmon Poachers

‘Tis the season to be jolly, so the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Police are spreading holiday sheer with their bad news.

Which is great response to a put a positive spin following a recent illegal gill-netting incident on Skookum Creek in WDFW Region 6 that led to two felony arrests.

Instead of dwelling on the negative, they wrote a holiday rhyme:

T’was a typical day for Officer Jewett on patrol, but his peek under the bridge wasn’t for trolls

Skookum Creek isn’t much of a creek, but it attracts its share of wrongdoing creeps

When he noticed a car parked alongside of the road, he sensed numerous violations of fishing codes

“Not today!” the officer thought, as he set out sneakily for the poachers to be caught

He watched the two robbers under Kamilche Lane; For unlawful netting, these two were to blame

After seeing plenty they were put into cuffs, t’was the least of their problems – they had other bad stuff

With felony warrants for their arrest, accommodations in jail seemed for the best.
Happy Holidays from Fish and Wildlife Police!
