    Well I was assaulted and thrown in jail by Game Wardens for demanding that they go after the poachers that had killed at least 200 of our biggest alligators in our Alligator Sanctuary.

    When our mother Bald Eagle had her head and feel cut off while she had babies in her nest I couldn’t get a Game Warden to even come out and investigate.

    I feel sorry for the honest Game Wardens but some are so unethical, violent, and corrupt that it makes it difficult for me to have compassion for the corrupt ones.

    Fortunately we now have a team of two professional and honest Game Wardens in San Jacinto County for which I am forever grateful.

    If the Game Warden who was assaulted was a good guy then of course the perps should be thrown in jail.
