MDC reintroduces Shiners at Dunn Ranch

Missouri Department of Conservation personnel are busy today re-introducing an endangered minnow species into ponds located at the Dunn Ranch in Harrison County. Over three thousand 300 Topeka shiner minnows will be released into three ponds at the ranch with the hope they will reproduce and provide additional shiners for future stream stocking. Media Specialist with the Missouri Department of Conservation...Bill Graham....says the pond stocking is part of a long-process to re-introduce federal and state endangered species back into prairie streams.
