DNR Looks for Duck-Killing Snowmobilers

DNR Looks for Duck-Killing Snowmobilers
Posted Monday, February 10th 2014 @ 7am  by The Associated Press

Officials are working to track down two snowmobilers they say plowed through an area of open water on the Saginaw River, killing several ducks.
Sgt. Ron Kimmerly of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division in Bay City says the ducks were killed around 4:50 p.m. Saturday. It happened along the east side of Middlegrounds Island, about a half-mile south of the Lafayette Street Bridge.
Published reports say that Kimmerly has a witness photograph, showing the snowmobilers [not the picture shown above], who both wore helmets, going through the water.  Photos show at least one dead duck on the ice and another stuck to one of the snowmobiles.
The DNR found at least nine dead ducks. The agency is seeking help from the public in identifying the snowmobilers.
