ND game officials seek help in poaching crime near #DAPL camp

While there is no proof that this disturbing video--which includes foul language and graphic violence--has anything to do with the protests at the Dakota Access Pipeline, its worth it to me as a blog entry.

From the Billings Gazette:
Animal cruelty charges could be considered after a disturbing video surfaced of an apparent deer poaching incident that occurred last fall near the Dakota Access protest camps, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department said.

The agency released the video to the public in hopes of identifying men who pulled a deer to shore after it was struggling in the Cannonball River, stabbed the animal multiple times and suffocated it by shoving its nose in the mud.

The department received the video last week from a concerned citizen who saw it on Facebook, said Scott Winkelman, investigations supervisor.
