Officers Investigating Squirrel & Turkey Deaths

Conservation officers say they are looking into the deaths of squirrels and a turkey as the fall hunting season gets underway. A DNR press release says 29-year old Brett Bailey of Elkhart is a suspect in the alleged shooting of a young turkey on his front yard with a pellet gun October 14th. Officers say he threw the illegally taken turkey in the trash. The DNR also says 20-year Willian Kyi and 34-year old Ka Lau of Fort Wayne allegedly shot squirrels at the Tri County Fish and Wildlife area Wednesday.
