A friend of mine was driving to work early this week down a back road. When suddenly a duck came out of the ditch and he hit it. Should be the end of the story? It's not. The next day a sheriff deputy comes to his house and knocks on the door. He is there to find out why the guy hit the duck. Seems a lady was getting her newspaper and saw him hit the duck. She took his plate number and called the sheriff. He told the deputy what happened and the deputy laughed as he called it in on the radio. The deputy and the dispatcher had a good laugh about it on the radio not believing they were chasing down a dead duck. The deputy made his notes and then left telling my friend not to worry about it. End of story? No the first clue was when the deputy told him not to worry about it. Yesterday 2 officers from ODNR showed up at this guys house wanting to know why he killed 2 ducks. I guess they needed 1 officer per duck. My buddy tells them he hit 1 duck when it came out of the ditch, he never saw a 2nd duck. It seems the woman called ODNR after she called the sheriff and the number of ducks increased. They told him they would be doing a follow up and would be back to talk to him if he didn't call a number they gave him and leave his version of what happened on a voice mail. (A confession without having his rights read?) The deputy and ODNR agents asked him why he didn't stop and offer assistance to the duck and see if it was alright. Besides being a funny story, this is a pretty telling point. They can get calls from people who say they are seeing illegal fishing activity, but in the 2 days it takes them to get there the violation is done. The caller was a woman who had never called them before, so they assumed she wasn't crying wolf, it must have happened the way she said. And what did she say? That this guy swerved before hitting the ducks so he must have done it on purpose. The time can made for 2 ODNR agents to chase down a hit and run on a duck but according to quite a few people here they won't come to check out fishing violations. What is wrong with this picture.
