Today's award goes to a romantically challenged poacher in Oklahoma.
Game warden Cannon Harrison probably wasn't expecting to make his latest bust on a dating app. But that's what happened after he matched with an Oklahoma woman on Bumble.
As they struck up an online conversation, the woman immediately shared that she had just killed a "bigo" buck — "obviously not knowing Cannon is a game warden," wrote the Oklahoma Game Wardens in a Facebook post.
. . .
In the process, the woman, whose name was not released, revealed to Harrison that she had committed two illegal acts — shooting the deer with a rifle outside of rifle season and using a spotlight at night to help her shoot the deer ... Further investigation showed the woman had committed a third illegal act — harvesting only the head and back-strap meat of the animal. The woman and an accomplice pleaded guilty and paid $2,400 in fines, according to the Tulsa World.
The local community had plenty of jokes about the situation. "I'm pretty sure a court date wasn't the type of date she was looking for," wrote one commenter on Facebook.

Clearly, she needs to distinguish between "dear" and "deer" - and certainly not mention both on the same dating app!
