SEATTLE (AP) – Washington state’s Department of Natural Resources has seized more than two dozen logs it says a timber crew featured on the History Channel’s reality show ‘Ax Men’ salvaged illegally.

DNR chief enforcement officer Larry Raedel says officers served a search warrant Friday on S&S Aqua Logging to retrieve timber the company had pulled from the Hoquiam River.

Raedel says the company didn’t have a permit to salvage those logs, and DNR officer were tipped off after watching the show.

Calls to the company were not immediately returned. The company is one of several timber crews featured in the second season of “Ax Men.”
