National Geographic features Kibby tonight

CLAREMORE — Claremore native and Claremore High School alumni, Phil Kibby will be featured Monday evening in an episode of National Geographic’s “Wild Justice.”

The episode titled “Undercover Cat” will feature an interview with Kibby, a senior chief in the United States Coast Guard.

The story will highlight an attempt by commercial fishermen of the coast of California to conduct some pre-season plundering.

The wardens will also go undercover to stop the illegal sale of an exotic African animal.

The wardens will arrest an illegal woodcutter and capture a notorious deer poacher.

Kibby, was interviewed on his role and the Coast Guard’s assistance with the operation.

Kibby has served in the Coast Guard for 16 years.

He graduated from Claremore High School in 1993.

The episode will air 6 p.m. on July 16 on the National Geographic Channel.

Each episode features stories of how law enforcement works to protect and oversee the 1,100 miles of coastal waters to the high deserts, the giant sequoias to Sierra Nevada mountains including 159,000 square miles, according to www.channel.nationalgeographic.com. 

“The 240 California Game Wardens patrol all of the states As the only line of defense in these sparsely populated, and often deadly places, this small group of law enforcement officers are constantly in pursuit of poachers, polluters, and illegal marijuana growers; while still making sure hunters and anglers follow the rules,” according to the site.

The Coast Guard works closely with these agencies to enforce the law.

People like Kibby play a role in the day to day operations of the agencies.
