(KAIR)--The illegal dumping of wild game on state property in Atchison County leads to an investigation.

According to a post on the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism Facebook page, the discovery was reported February 5.

According to the post, the agency was notified by a Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper that 18 geese had been illegally dumped at a Kansas Department of Transportation mixing strip.

The posting states that an investigation was launched by the Atchison County Game Warden, who found that the 18 geese had no meat taken, and were left to waste.

They had been dumped following the morning snow fall of February 4th, which the post says means the dumping happened sometime between the afternoon of February 4 and the evening of February 5.

No leads have yet been developed, with the wildlife agency turning to the public for help with finding who's responsible for the crime.

Anyone with information related to the investigation is asked to contact the wildlife agency's Operation Game Thief at (877) 426-3843.
