Stolen Equipment, Controlled Narcotics and Illegal Taxidermy Seized at Oklahoma Wildlife Ranch
On Wednesday, July 9th, officials form the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry's Investigative Services Division were assisted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Examiners Board in the execution of a search warrant for the Triple S Wildlife Ranch and Resort in Calvin, Oklahoma. ODAFF Special Investigators obtained information that the ranch was attempting to sell stolen ATV's on Craigslist.
According to the ODAFF a search of the 3,000 acre property produced stolen ATVs and tractors, illegal controlled narcotics and illegal taxidermy. Those items were seized by authorities and are being entered into evidence.
ODAFF Chief Agent Jerry Flowers held a press conference today at the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry in Oklahoma City. We are still waiting for the outcome of that press conference. It was to include details of the findings, charges the owner could face and a number of the seized mounted animals including a Caracara Mexican eagle pictured below:
The outcome of the investigation and the press conference will be posted as soon as we receive the update.
