Field Reports - June 21, 2019

Berks County Game Warden Ryan L. Zawada reports that citations were filed against a Lancaster County man and a animal auction for attempting to sell two wild Canada geese. The man had taken the goose eggs from a wild nest and incubated them. After three years, he was tired of having the geese around his property, so he caught them and transferred them to an animal auction company, which attempted to sell them.

Bucks County Game Warden Tyler Barnes interviewed a Warminster Township resident about an antlered deer that was illegally harvested this past archery season. Using information gathered from neighboring Game Warden Shawna Burkett and Deputy Game Warden Kevin Maguire, a suspect was identified. Barnes and Burkett arrived at the suspect’s house and were able to determine he used a crossbow to shoot the buck from a vehicle in a densely populated area. Multiple citations were filed.

Chester County Game Warden Matthew Johnson, reports that, in early May, a Pottstown man was charged with three counts of unlawfully shooting three gray squirrels in his yard. The subject baited an area of his lawn with bird seed to lure the squirrels to a location where he could shoot them with a .22 rifle from a room inside his house. The subject’s justification was that the squirrels ate from his wife’s birdfeeders and would come onto his deck, but he admitted that they never caused any damage to his property. The subject pleaded guilty to all three charges.

Lancaster County Game Warden Daniel Gibble reports citing an individual with releasing a cat on State Game Lands.

Northampton County Game Warden Bradley Kreider reports that, two years after filing citations for littering on state game lands, he received a hearing notice from the Magisterial District Judge that the individual was located, and the warrant successfully executed.

Montgomery County Game Warden Raymond Madden reports there has been a recent increase in trash being found in parking lots. The game lands are a public place for people to enjoy, not a garbage dump. Anyone found littering will be prosecuted to the fullest.

Schuylkill County Game Warden Jason Macunas reports that an Auburn man recently pleaded guilty to baiting wildlife on state game lands. The individual had a tube feeder consisting of a plastic PVC pipe attached to a tree to contain and dispense grain. Individuals are reminded that the feeding of wildlife or placing any minerals to attract wildlife on state game lands is prohibited.
