FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Office of Inspector General in the Kentucky Cabinet for Public Protection has opened an investigation into the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Agency spokesman Dick Brown confirmed that the investigation is underway. Brown declined to disclose the focus of the probe.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is attached to the Tourism Cabinet, which doesn't have its own Office of Inspector General. That's why investigators from the Cabinet for Public Protection are handling the probe.

Others also are looking into the agency, including the Legislature's Program Review and Investigations Committee that's in the midst of a yearlong review.

John Steffen, head of the Executive Branch Ethics Commission, said this week that he "could neither confirm nor deny" that his agency is also investigating.
