This article recounts the experiences of New York environmental conservation officers while on duty. Two fishermen in Niagara County were charged with taking more than the daily limit of salmon, and a violation of the fish carcass disposal law. The arresting officers discovered that there were already six salmon in the violators' vehicle. On the other hand, a Division of Law Enforcement investigation of an individual advertising exotic animals on the Internet led to his arrest in a buy-and-bust operation in Brooklyn.
