Louisiana Fish and Wildlife equipment being sold on Facebook?

The state of Louisiana owned high-end kite reels. When they appeared on Facebook for sale, an employee came to light.

This story from the Outdoor section of the Times Picayune in Louisiana. We really love the people from our own FWC, and know many of them from the people working on boats in the water to the executives responsible for making sure the entire mechanism is functioning well. They do it well. The same thing applies to the Louisiana F&W and those in all the states. A bad apple in this case was caught selling - among other things - $1,200 kite reels.

Kite reels? Really? Cool items, but what the hell was the state doing with them in the first place? We guess that is from another story. They are very effective for billfish and goggle eyes, for sure :)

LA Fish and Wildlife Bust

In general the people at F&W organizations are very cool and dedicated. In this case law enforcement found a bunch of fishing equipment being sold by an employee on her Facebook page. Not good.

A former Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries employee offered for sale on the internet fishing equipment matching the description of items purchased by a team managed by her husband, also a department employee, with a state credit card in the wake of the BP oil spill, according to a report issued Monday morning.
