A Washington man who found dried porcinis and dried truffles in a backyard of a Washington County park said he has been contacted by local authorities who are investigating.
The man, identified by the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office as Kevin F. B., said the truffled mushrooms and the dried porcupines in a park in the Prince Georges County community of Redington were found in August and September, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
B. said he is not sure where the mushrooms came from, but he is glad they are safe.
He said he contacted local law enforcement and asked them to contact him if they found the mushrooms.
B., who is a member of the Prince of Wales Chapter of the National Mushroom Advisory Council, said the mushrooms were found by him while he was hiking with his daughter and his daughter’s friend on the trails near Redington.
He was hiking in a protected area, and his trail passed through a large area of the park where the porcupine mushrooms were discovered.
B.’s daughter and friend told him about the porcines and truffls and how they were found, B. said.
B said he had been camping with his family in the park, which is about a five-minute walk from the park’s visitor center.
He described the mushrooms as white, about 2 inches in diameter, and about 1/4-inch thick.
B. has been camping in a separate area of Redwood Creek Park since July and said he and his family are not in any danger because of the discovery.
He said he thought the mushrooms might be edible, but the mushrooms are not, and he does not want to eat them.
B.: I think that they are edible.
I just don’t want to.
B.: I have been hiking, and I have found porcine and truffle mushrooms in a number of different places around the world.
I think that is really a bad idea, B.: You have a problem here in Washington.
You can’t have the whole world and just say we don’t care about mushrooms.
I have never seen any of those mushrooms.
You have got to be a real expert.
The sheriff’s department has not said where the truffle or porcina mushrooms were picked up.
B: That is not how it is supposed to work.
The county has been very cooperative with the investigation, but if you want to talk about the mushroom and porcination, that is a very different matter.
I am a big fan of mushroom farming, and if it is a problem for us to have to be responsible and not want people to be hurt, then so be it.
I am not going to eat it, and it has been in my back yard for 10 years, and the county will do whatever it takes to protect the public.
I just don`t want it to happen again.
