The regional director of Ducks Unlimited for Nevada/Arizona, Shay Byars, has been charged with illegally shooting a swan in a closed area not open to swan hunting at Ruby Marshes in Elko County, after an inquiry into the incident was expressed by HUNTER'S ALERT.

The incident was witnessed by an informer. The suspect fled the scene of the shooting and upon questioning, has denied any role in the incident.

According to Ducks Unlimited, he has been fired from his job because of the way he mishandled the situation. He reportedly lived in Henderson, Nevada and since has left the state, possibly relocating to Florida or Georgia. Since at this time, he has not been located, no citation has been issued to him. Nevada Department of Wildlife law enforcement is attempting to locate him. Anyone knowing his whereabouts can contact NDOW law enforcement or Secret Witness.
