Field Officer Reports - August 28, 2015

Lackawanna County WCO Jared Turner reports that a man was arrested at the State Game Lands 300 shooting range in Archbald for impersonating a public servant. The suspect was identifying himself as both an undercover police officer and a "Game Warden," then demanding IDs from the public.

Susquehanna County WCO Mike Webb reports that many people are reporting bears in Oakland and Harmony townships. Bear trapping success seems to be cyclical. In some years the bears just don't seem to want to go in the trap, and this year appears to be one of those. The number of bears trapped in Susquehanna County this year is down despite intense trapping efforts. People having conflicts with a bear are encouraged to contact the regional office at 570-675-1143.
