NAMPA, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A western Idaho Fish and Game officer seeks information after 34 waterfowl carcasses were dumped and left to waste behind a Fred Meyer store Wednesday night in Garden City.

Idaho Fish and Game said district conservation officer Ben Cadwaller found 19, mostly mallard ducks, whole and another 15 with the breast meat removed. The waterfowl were dumped before 8 p.m. behind the store on Glenwood Street and Chinden Blvd.

Security footage captured the suspected pickup truck that dumped the waterfowl.

The pickup truck is believed to be a 2008-2010 model Ford Super Duty Extra Cab, dark in color, possibly black, with a white or lighter colored stripe along with the running board.
