An example of this is when they were being chased down, and instead of confronting them and having it turn into a big fight, they instead flea to Bolivia where they won’t be tracked. The film has
“In Illinois, we as wardens are police officers with full police powers. We concentrate our efforts in protecting the natural resources and people who use them. Wardens are the primary law enforcement for State Parks and Fish and Wildlife areas” (Swance). Game wardens are people who are employed to supervise hunters and game.

I heard Thomas Rhett softly singing Leave Right Now but only realized it’s my alarm going off again and was now 5:46 a.m. Boone was going to be here in less then ten minutes.
