Weekly Conservation Officer Reports

Jul 24, 2017 01:29PM ● Published by Editor



CO Mary Manning (Hovland) attended instructor training at Camp Ripley in preparation for the upcoming statewide in-service. CO Manning patrolled area lakes and campgrounds, took reports of possible cougar scat on a party?s driveway, and a dead loon that appears to have swallowed a hook. The officer also investigated a wolf depredation complaint in which a calf was killed. One angler contacted will be receiving paperwork for failing to have a fishing license and additional paperwork for having lied about his age and providing false information to support that lie.

CO Marty Stage (Ely) worked on equipment transport and inspections and conducted interviews to follow up on past cases. Fishing has been getting much better in the area. The rain frequency has slowed down a bit allowing people to get out and better partake of all the opportunities that exist in the Ely area.

CO Don Murray (Two Harbors) worked boating and angling activity during the week. Fishing improved this week with several anglers checked with limits of lake trout on Lake Superior. CO Murray responded with rescue personnel to a call in Gooseberry Falls State Park where a hiker had slipped and injured her knee needing evacuation by ambulance.

CO David Schottenbauer (Silver Bay) took care of a few beaver complaints in the area. Time was spent at Camp Ripley for officer training.

CO Sean Williams (Ely) assisted the Babbitt Police Department with the investigation of an ATV accident after a Class 2 ATV rolled onto its side near the city. Fortunately all three people were wearing their seatbelts, but one occupant was injured. The driver was not very familiar with the ATV and was found not to have an ATV safety certificate.
