Wildlife officers to conduct checkpoints in Nevada County

Submitted to The Union

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife will be conducting wildlife checkpoints in October and November to promote safety, education and compliance with laws and regulations.

Wildlife officers will be at the California Department of Food and Agriculture Inspection Station on westbound Interstate 80 in Truckee from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Saturday, Nov. 14 and Sunday, Nov. 22.

Wildlife checkpoints encourage safety and sportsmanship by promoting voluntary compliance with laws and regulations through education, preventative patrol and enforcement.

All anglers and hunters will be required to stop and submit to an inspection. Officers will also be providing informative literature about the invasive quagga mussel to anglers and chronic wasting disease to deer hunters.
