For game wardens on New York’s Salmon River, velcro license plate holders are one of the few signs of intelligence among wildlife thieves at work. For example: “When a spotlight was shined on the group, one of the men ran off into the dark woods. [State Department of Environmental Conservation officer Shawn] Dussault gave chase. ‘I looked down at the ground and the leaves were moving – he was running with his pole and his braided line had caught on something and he was letting it out as he ran,’ He said. ‘I just reached down, picked up the line and followed it … right to his camp. Talk about a trail of bread crumbs.'” David Figura on Syracuse.com.
