A major joint operation with the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has led to more than 100 citations and or arrests against paddlefish poachers.

After posting his "manifesto" on Facebook outlining plans for a revenge-fueled murder spree targeted at law enforcement officers, Christopher Dorner had been a fugitive in the California’s San Bernardino National Forest for nearly a week.

When Dorner saw the officers, he opened fire spraying bullets through the front windshield and driver’s door window. Several bullets pierced the vehicle’s cabin, including one that lodged in a seat just 10 inches from the driver’s head. [ Read Full Post ]
