Landowner Takes out Poacher In the most EPIC Way!

On the Facebook page of Washington’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, most people seem to be firmly behind a Pierce County landowner who took a poaching matter into his own hands. He decided to use his tractor to ensure the offense would not happen again.

The landowner used his tractor too, as WDFW writes on Facebook “push the {poacher’s} truck down an embankment.” WDFW police got called to the area by the landowner’s neighbor, who worried something worse might happen.

Officers removed the man from the tractor, removed a loaded .44 magnum from his waistband, and detained the man. The tractor man was the landowner and didn’t want the poacher to get away.

The poacher turned out to be a 16-year-old neighbor and his grandfather. The 16-year-old had killed a closed season cow elk. The cow elk was recovered, and the meat was donated to a local food bank.

WDFW ask that people do not take matters like this into their own hands. Call the Department of Fish and Wildlife, or call 911.
