ALLEGAN, Mich. — Allegan County's Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) conservation officers are requesting tips from the public after finding more than 500 tires dumped in several locations in and near the Allegan State Game Area over the past 7 days.

The first pile of more than 300 tires were first discovered on Wednesday by a local resident who walks in the state game area daily.

That resident reported his findings to the DNR's Report All Poaching hotline, and confirmed that the tires covering snowmobile trail #59 were not there two days prior.

Since Wednesday, officers estimate they have located more than 500 tires.

More piles have been located in and near the state game area, as well as along the roadways between Allegan and Fennville.

Anyone with information about these tires is asked to contact the DNR Report All Poaching Hotline (1-800-292-7800). You can call or text 24/7 and remain anonymous.
