Julia J. Clark, the author of this article, found three kitchen garbage bags filled with dead waterfowl.
Quoted from the Facebook group “What’s Up Pacific City?”
We had a potching incident today. If you have any information or hear anyone bragging please share, tell someone, reach out to me, the Sherriff, or any person that you feel can reach out for you.
Poaching without harvesting is wrong. What you see here is enough meat to feed the K9 Unit Greenbean and me for weeks.
It is not OK for tourists to waste organic meats.
This was located in the Price field in Cloverdale behind the wastewater plant at the boat dock/dog run.
The Sargent also mentioned two elk poached, but not harvested today. They were salvaged, though.
This is a location I go to every day. They were not there the day before. When I first pulled up, I thought someone had dumped their household garbage. I went to sift the bags for an address or other information that could lend knowledge. When I got there, one bag was already partially opened at the top, not torn at the sides.
We do need tourists. We do not want nor need tourists that pillage. If this was a local that puts the kill in a whole other ball field. Whoever dumped were, however, familiar enough with the area to know that location to dump … It was an extraordinary waste. The oils alone from that amount of game birds fine high-end face creams and soaps, the feathers, not to mention the meat and bone meal.
