Someone illegally dumped chicken feet in the Shuswap

Chicken feet left on trail

The BC Conservation Officer Service is reminding locals that disposing of chicken feet on trails is littering.

Chicken feet and feathers were recently found in the Shuswap, between Eagle Bay and White Lake. 

"It's illegal. It is littering and it's not the proper way to dispose of it," conservation officer Tanner Beck tells Castanet. 

The fine is $115, he adds.

Beck suspects the chicken feet came from someone who butchered the birds.

They'll likely remain where they are, he says.

"There's no cleanup agency for the Crown land up there. Stuff like this will be cleaned up by scavengers."

A post circulating on Facebook a few days ago suggested the chicken feet were eagle talons. Beck says that's not the case.
