Friday, September 30, 2022

INDIANAPOLIS- Indiana Conservation Officers are encouraging people to utilize the Turn In a Poacher, Inc. (TIP) program and help stop poaching.

According to the DNR, TIP is a nonprofit conservation organization that protects fish and wildlife resources by increasing public support and involvement in bringing violators to justice.

The DNR defines a poacher as "a thief who illegally steals wildlife that belongs to each Indiana citizen."

If you are aware of any potential violations, you're urged to report by calling 1-800-TIP-IDNR (800-847-4367) or going online to tip.IN.gov.

People are urged to call TIP if they see, hear, or learn about poaching or another violation regarding fish and wildlife. This includes pollution and dumping.

If the information given to TIP leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a $500 reward all while remaining anonymous.
