GAME WARDEN MEETS POACHER ON DATING APP, BAD AFFAIR
Online dating is fraught with quirky issues. Anyone who has ever been on a few can tell you that. But things can happen way before you even get to the date! Depending on the app, there can be a lot of dialogue about who you are, what you like. It’s a great way to feel each other out a bit and see if you really want to meet in person. But for one poor sap, this didn’t work out so well at all. She was a poacher and had no idea the person she was chatting with on the dating app was….. a game warden. That’s a big oops. But even more so when she bragged about illegally bagging a deer. Bigger oops. Your potential date has turned into a court date.

WOMAN BRAGGED HOW SHE BAGGED AN ILLEGAL DEER ON DATING APP
Cannon Harrison is the game warden in this story. He’s a game warden in McIntosh County, Oklahoma. He was just a bit surprised. He said, “It was definitely a shock.” He met the woman poacher on the Bumble app last month in December. They were chatting thru the app and then she said some things she should not have said, about something she should not have done. Evidently, she had recently shot a deer out of season. She shot it at night. She shot it with a spotlight. But she also left most of the carcass to rot. Those are all big no-no’s.
WOMAN FOUND AND FINED, NO FIRST DATE PLANNED WITH WARDEN
But then she bragged about it to Cannon (and yes, that is an ironic name for a game warden). She wrote, “Pretty happy about it.” She even sent him a photo from the hunt. So then Cannon did some investigating. As quickly as the next day, other wardens appeared at the poacher’s front door. She pled guilty to improper possession of an illegally taken animal and hunting game out of season. She was also fined $2,400. Harrison described the “affair” as “kind of a bummer.” But he continued that “you can’t just ignore a broken law that falls right in your lap.”
