Dr. Anthony Perrone holds an MD from Dartmouth Medical School. He is now the chief of plastic surgery at Maine General Medical Center. Anthony Perrone, MD, is also active in charitable and philanthropic pursuits, including support of Maine Operation Game Thief (Maine OGT).

A nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting wildlife in the state, Maine OGT works with local authorities and the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to stop poachers who commit wildlife crimes. Maine OGT allows the public to anonymously report poachers. Citizens may be eligible for rewards when their information is used to stop wildlife crimes.

Rewards of up to $1,000 are available for information that leads to an arrest for a wildlife violation. A $2,000 reward may be given for information involving the illegal introduction of a nonnative fish species.

Anonymous reporters do not need to testify in court to collect their rewards. To report poaching or other wildlife crimes in Maine, call 1-800-253-7887, or fill out the form online at maineogt.org.
