Well done on sheep poaching case

To the editor:

I would like to congratulate Judge Greg Baxter, D.A. Matt Shirtcliff, and the Oregon State Police Game Enforcement Division (which is funded by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife at $19 million per biennium) in the highly successful prosecution of Oregon v. Bronson last month in Baker County Circuit Court. The prosecution team had the backbone to stand up against popular political opinion and seek equal justice for all of Oregon's citizens regarding our very precious resource of wild sheep populations in Eastern Oregon.

If you know an OPS Game Enforcement officer, I hope you will tell them that you support and encouraged their career's work in the best interest of all Oregonians. I am sure they will appreciate your thanks.
