LDWF says ‘No Vaccine, No Hunting’ graphic circulating on social media is false
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A graphic circulating on social media claiming the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will not issue new hunting licenses to people who cannot prove they’ve received COVID-19 vaccine is false, officials say.
The erroneous post appears to be a screenshot of a TV news story and incorporates LDWF’s logo with the words “BREAKING NEWS” and “No Vaccine, No Hunting.”
- How to purchase/renew Louisiana hunting and fishing licenses
- ‘We have to let it go’ - Doctors say Ivermectin will not help treat COVID-19
- More protection: US likely to authorize COVID booster shots
- Frustrated parents steal the show at committee meeting over COVID mandates
LDWF officials say disclosure of COVID-19 vaccination status is not required to receive a hunting license.
Wildlife agents are asking anyone who sees the fake graphic to ignore it and delete it when possible.
The agency says it’s investigating the source of the graphic.
