17 Illegal Game Animal Heads Seized in New Mexico

Officers seize 17 illegal game animal heads during multiple search warrants in Farmington

New Mexico Department of Game and Fish officers, with assistance from the New Mexico State Police and San Juan County Sheriff’s office, seized 17 illegal game animal heads during multiple search warrants throughout the Farmington area on Tuesday

The investigation into a Farmington man, who is facing multiple charges, originated in early 2017 from an investigation by Department of Game and Fish Officer Shana Burkhardt after trail camera pictures placed on private land revealed what appeared to be illegal activity.

It is illegal in the state of New Mexico to kill any game animal out of season and without a proper and valid hunting license. It is also illegal to pick up dead heads, road kill or any skull with antlers attached.

The Department of Game and Fish encourages anyone with information about wildlife crimes to call Operation Game Thief toll-free at (800) 432-4263. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for rewards if information leads to charges being filed.
