Vermont to share info on wildlife violators

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is joining 38 other states in sharing information about when hunting and fishing licenses are suspended.

The Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact recognizes license suspensions of member states.

Any person whose license privileges are suspended in one compact member state will have his or her licenses suspended in all other states that belong to the compact.

Vermont's chief game warden, Col. David LeCours, says the compact is an added deterrent for Vermonters who might be tempted to violate fish and wildlife laws at home and then expect to hunt, fish or trap in other states.
