STOLEN EQUIPMENT CRITICAL LOSS AT TUTTLE CREEK WILDLIFE AREA


October 4, 2012



BLUE RAPIDS--The actions of a thoughtless thief or thieves could have dire impacts on the duck hunting prospects for Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s (KDWPT) Black Vermillion Marsh on the Tuttle Creek Wildlife Area. Early on Thursday morning, KDWPT staff discovered that a diesel engine and 300-gallon fuel tank mounted on a trailer were missing. The equipment was being used to pump water and flood marshes on the wildlife area.



The severe drought has left marshes dry, and the water level at Tuttle Creek Reservoir is the second lowest on record. Projections are that if substantial rain does not fall in the basin this fall, the lake may reach a new record low sometime this winter. The only bright spot is that lower water levels during the summer allowed vegetation to grow and create exceptional food resources for waterfowl. However, unless that vegetation can be flooded, neither the ducks nor the hunters will be able to take advantage of it.



Wildlife area staff had been periodically pumping water over the past 45 days, flooding vegetation to improve conditions for ducks and hunters. The stolen equipment is easily recognizable as the black 300-gallon fuel tank and red Case diesel engine are both mounted on a large black fifth-wheel, tandem-axle trailer. KDWPT officials are asking anyone with information that could lead to recovery of this stolen property to contact the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at 785-562-3141 or the KDWPT office at 785-363-7316

Back it into any garage.
Unhitch.
Close garage door.

I'll keep my eyes open for it, but I wouldn't have much hope for its recovery.

What a shame......I doubt they will ever find it, but if they do I hope they prosecute them to the limit of the law, and IF they are hunters ban them from EVER hunting in the state of Kansas EVER again.
IF I AGREED WITH YOU, WE'D BOTH BE WRONG.

They will find it eventually. And if they are KS hunters everything will be forgiven. If they are out of state hunters they will be given the key to the state and a lifetime hunting license.

What pricks, If they are located I saw we cut off their index fingers to remind them what happens when they steal, then we make them spend every weekend of hunting season in county jail for a year!

Reminder not to be a tight lip. If you see something questionable. Call it. I have caught several people trying to do things like this, and it ended them being apprehended by the mean green jeans

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Low life thieves for sure. I say if caught they should be tied face first to the pump outlet and left alone for a few hours. See how they like it. Just enough offset so they don't drown but sure learn a lesson.
Layout boats and blinds are pure death from below to the mallet's but leaning on a tree is the best deal in the woods!

I am suprised KDWP$T doesn't have insurance on their equipment. You would think they would have replaced it by now. At the very least, the KDWP$T would take some of the money they make from OOS and replace the pumps.
