(Jefferson City) More than a dozen hunters are being cited for killing too many squirrels in Missouri.

The state’s Department of Conservation said sixteen hunters received citations after agents found they had killed 471 squirrels in two days in and around the Current River Conservation Area in southeast Missouri.

A concerned citizen reported the activity. State wildlife regulations limit hunters to ten squirrels per day, and hunters may only possess up to 20 squirrels.
